Artist's Description

In my grandmother’s house
I live surrounded by old
dark wood and the song
of the wood thrush
playing on tape.

In my grandmother’s chair
I sit fitting into cotton
crevices formed by old hips
and wood worn smooth
by soft wrinkled hands.

I’m occupying still-warm
vacated spaces.

My grandmother’s strong bones
are buried in the graveyard
by the interstate highway
but I catch reflections
of her memories
in the bathroom mirror
as I pass.

She is too quick for me.

(Dedicated to my grandmother, Tallulah Little Dozier)

I took this picture a week after my grandmother passed away in 1989, leaving me the gift of her wonderful, organic home where I lived for sixteen years. Living in this quaint, old house tucked into the woods of South Carolina was one of the greatest joys of my life.
