40 years later, she lives alone

with the cat. When the weather

is gracious, she works in the garden.

She is an expert at pulling weeds

and pressing flowers. She goes

to funerals instead of church.

That’s what her friends do these days.

At family gatherings, she makes the stories

spin, raising the ghosts from the graves.
