Meeting Mother


Pieces of my dead mother fell out of the package,
scattered across my bed.
Not one piece was book-sized,
But they were all pages of her life.

Letters from her father,
Graduation certificates,
Yellowing color photos from the sixties—
These snips and clips painted her.

This is how I met mother.
