Sad Wednesday

googoo eyes
rain since Sunday
brought a damp relief
from brutal heat yet
you are on your way
again – going far away
this saddened Wednesday

I just became your Gran

in scant two weeks
you managed to
dissemble my beliefs
dissolved an incredulity
which harboured
sweet addiction

how dare you leave?

while grandeur of
grandparenthood
survives the fast
I’ll pine so grievously
for sanction
of your smile
