then

when i was ten
i would
spend my summers
at
the nursing home
my mother
worked at

none
are as honest
as children
and
adults close to death

many truths were shared

at times

i
was surrounded
by ghosts

that didn’t know
they
were dead
yet

but
they always had
hard candies

and

they all thought
i
was
handsome
