Realizing Mortality

Standing in his kitchen,

emptying the dishwasher,

holding a spoon,

feeling the smooth, concave

shape,

the long, slender

handle,

he realized the spoon would

be there for his survivors

to wash and put in the flatware

drawer.

He didn’t think they would

look, really look at

or feel the spoon

as he just had.
