Hmm. I'd better do Some Laundry or Something

My mother's here. She's 89, inert,
Of course, incurious. The past is
Where she's gone to live, the present
More a screening room for images
Of all that was. She plays them
Without surcease for the both of us.
I start to squirm. Given what I
See in her, my future isn't
Promising, but, in the present I
Call home, there are things
I could do.
