Nana

by Kat Smith. Published in Apiary Magazine, Fall 2011

She sat, right leg tightly crossed over left

Right elbow anchored on her knee

Dangling foot circling, circling

I kissed her soft, powdery cheek

Right elbow anchored on her knee

Serving as a hinge

I kissed her soft, powdery cheek

She drew her cigarette close

Serving as a hinge

That opened and closed

I kissed her soft, powdery cheek

This was her pose

That opened and closed

Right elbow anchored on her knee

She drew her cigarette close

I copied her

Right elbow anchored on her knee

Dangling foot circling, circling

I copied her

She sat, right leg tightly crossed over left.
