small stones – January 4, 2017

dear sister
late though you were
(four days past Christmas)
& while it was lovely to see you
(since it has been months)
why oh why did you bring in
the crud?

now we are all ill
from your ill-timed visit
(a few more days for you to get well
would have suited us all just fine)
