Ode to My Mom

I do not drink but

Before my mother arrives

I stock her hotel room with a box of white wine.

Once she is here, we eat every meal out,

choosing only restaurants

with a bar.

Sunday brunch at 11 because

they won’t have begun serving alcohol

until then.

Thank goodness she no longer smokes

though every day she wishes she still did.
