With Her eyes Closed - April 6, 2022

I bet by noon

Ileana could

clean our house

walk to the thrift store

and feed cans and bottles

into the recycle machine

blindfolded


with her eyes closed

she also sleeps

though I wonder

if she dreams

of awakening


with eyes open

confused

for just a moment

not knowing

where she is
