Where is my cord?

Yvonne Stewart 2010




I remember the slippery leather of

Fatherís Stickley mission recliner


And Motherís hands crowned

with scarlet tips,


Pulling me close for a hug,

giving chili and crackers.


And in my room,

my bungee platform with a feather pillow.


Do you see me down here now,

searching for crumbs?
