Wise

4.15.18   14:35

Yesterday my mother told me that I am wise.
I was closing my eyes in bed
My comforter vibrated.
I read,
“I wish I was as wise as you even are now.
I love you just so much”
My face turned to sand.
I engraved the words into a plaque in my brain.
Placed it in a box.
A very special box.
I hope the toxicity from food and polluted air
Won’t give me Alzheimer’s.
I never want to forget that.
