Frames: A Family Portrait Pantoum


Frames: A Family Portrait Pantoum

frames on our parents’ bookshelf

not portraits of their children

we were replaced 

by their dogs 

not portraits of their children 

in matching silver frames

but their dogs 

much easier creatures to love 

in matching silver frames 

Mulligan and Georgia Girl

easier creatures to love

these two spoiled dogs 

their dogs – not portraits of us

we were replaced

by easier creatures to love 

frames on our parents’ bookshelf
