MEMORY PILL DREAM

by joannagilmanhyde

The Hawk Queen Bed 8:50am

I woke with The Dream

of My Mother

having Her 2nd Funeral

I was with Howard

in The Jordan Bay House

& She hadn’t died yet

I asked Howard where

We should have The Funeral

& He said Here!

We can put The Coffin

on The Sun Porch Table

& have Everyone park

on the grass. We can send

Her Body out to sea

& I said, It better go

way out to sea or

It will just wash up

in The Cove!

I asked My Brother —

“Have You ever known

Anyone Who’s had 2

Funerals?”
