Staying with Old People
Jim Heynen

I knew I'd like them
when I saw their old
black car--its long

gentle dents said
something about kindness,
about how to meet

an adversary. Do you
suppose the greatest
kindness is thoughtless?

He gets up early
and makes tea. He takes
his false teeth from

a glass and refills it
with warm water. Her teeth
are still in there,

warming up. When she
comes, those warm
teeth slide

into her warm mouth
so easily she hardly
notices her own smile.
