A little to late

My entire family 
was together for the 
first time since I was two

My cousins were hugging
My aunts cried together
Grandpa was at the front 
Speaking to everyone 

And grandma was in the casket

A few words were spoken 
We put her in the ground 
And then we ate dinner

As a family 
For the first time
I ever remember

Thoughts and Dislocations

Coffee and weed
Beer and good cheer

He went to the water
But never got wet 

Got a tattoo 
But just on his chest

He went to Las Vegas
But never tried betting

Now he's eighty-two
And sits home regretting
