We FaceTime
by Deenaz P. Coachbuilder

and you tell me you learnt about how
to make a healthy dessert
so I ask you how you made it
and you tell me step by step
to peel the banana
then freeze it for a few hours
and when you take it out
and mash it Grandma
it tastes just like ice cream
while I listen wondering whether I will see you
grown and dressed for graduation
or warn you of the world’s snares as you step out
or hug you later as only grandmas can
and will you make it
and I promise, yes, I will make it
your voice flowing through me,
as the world continues in its
forever turn.
