Family Photo


Family Photo

One last picture
before we head off
in different directions.

One last group shot of
all of us, smirking,
with rabbit ears.

Three generations:
kids on shoulders,
a baby cousin in my lap.

And in the middle
Grandma and Grandpa
who started all this.

We’re all ripples in a pond
spreading out
from a stone they threw.
