Grandmother planted tobacco.
First woman to grow her own. Smoked
it too, in a crooked corncob pipe,
wiped clean each night by Grandfather.
Grandfather loved to cook.
There he would be, stirring
a stew, checking seasonings.
He enjoyed pleasing Grandmother.
Thought she was wisest woman
in the whole world.
Evenings spent on porch,
a banjo, Grandmother singing
along. Owls, eavesdropping
under a moon-filled sky,
watched curls of tobacco
smoke sail through the air.
