Letting Go …

Sitting in
my mother’s final
sleeping room
weeping to
the sound of Perry Como
as I watch her go.

Seems only
yesterday we sang
(a bit tight)
Auld Lang Syne,
yet the eve has come once more
for midnight kissing.

A very Happy New Year to you and your loved ones, from me and mine (including the felines, Charlie and Prudie).

Everyday
As I make my way
To the town
Hospital
I see a ragged wasp nest
Dangling from a tree;

I’m waiting
For the grey mummy-
Mask to fall,
So I can
Run over it with my car–
Ghost-wasps do not sting.
