On the Rocks

In the kitchen
my grandfather and I
drink lime margaritas
on the rocks. Here
in Alabama it is too muggy
for the tropical paradise
our drinks suggest. Pine trees
can’t pass as palm trees, nor kudzu
as liana. My margarita is made
with leftover vodka. It tastes
too sharp and bitter.

On the back porch
my grandmother shaves
her sister’s head
with an electric razor.
My great-aunt is sixty-three,
a terminal case. I try
not to watch her hair fall
and slide between the boards.
