At A Lutheran Potluck, She Said

It is just a body--

     Grace turned 90
     her eyes were once blue
     the right one turned cloudy white
     an angry scab covers the left socket
     She waits in front of her favorite cake
     talking has become a chore

--it fails to function properly

I am tired
I don't want to go to work today
My knees ache
I'm not that old
