27 faces on Grandma's wall
27 silicate screens and no smiles
they didn't do that back then.
And Great Grandpa Joe's hair frozen funny
death-still on the snow white wall
always made me laugh.
He was a monolith, unmoved,
master of the living room.
But a greater sight the window at right
and a small handprint there
where grandma watched the snow.
And this 28th face, a hand in place,
scares me most.
She always kept the place so clean.
