Theme X: Family, “Very Cold and Early”

By Nicholas Ng

 

Very Cold and Early

Once in the morning

of San Fransisco, my grandma

emptied a box of Cocoa

Puffs. My legs swung

over the floor laid

like half a puzzle.

The sun filtered through

fog and lacework

windows. The walls

had many faces.

I ascended

the carpeted stair

on all fours. I tallied

the flora and beasts.
