chinese checkers

  1. my six aunts and
    uncle gather around
    grandma’s hospital
    bed, allowing
    the performance of
    procedure to overtake the
    art of living.
    Their hands
    are collectively
    tied in the pursuit
    of individual

    grandma looks
    on, one against
    six, a tube down
    her throat, mindful
    of cumulative losses.

    as in every
    situation, time
    flexes its
    muscles, taunting us
    to hold on or let go
    while duty,
    devotion, and rivalry
    measure us for both
