mom at 98

her mind is her own
sees things
no one else does
the Cheyenne call it
an existence between two worlds
that of the living, that of the dead,
the "wandering without,"
she hears the banshee's call
she welcomes it
and wonders why its taking its time
a great gift of age is waking every morning
with no fear of death
