Summers With Grandma - Poem by Xillus Xavier

Her wrinkled hands working,
methodically moving:
snap, snap, snapping,
snapping greens;

broken beans falling,
landing with a thud
in her dull and dented
aluminum lap bowl,

and my cousins and me playing
on the cool kitchen tile,
swaying slightly
to her slow southern hum.
