    Dedicated to my father's parents.
    (See also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peeler_Bluff)

    When your 10 trillion cells finished their work
    there were still many candies unfound in your home.
    My boyish mind still gapes at every detail that presents
    itself in sunlight and in slumber, as it often would
    in your den amidst curiosities from lands far
    more intricate than the one in your windowsill.

    I remember fried chicken coleslaw potatoes and green
    beans; wooden chairs and explanations of the
    information I was so eager to share; pictures of the
    past that somehow wrought the very existence of
    the room and the bodies within it; cold nights and
    strange sleep on couches and beds not my own.

    Like the plants on your porch, you tended to us
    and marveled at our beauty while we basked in yours.

    So much of me wanted to play the piano in that great
    hall so that you could be proud of me in person;
    I still am terribly proud of the man who was yours
    but to me may always be a mystery unlearned.

    I always treasured visits to your home because they
    mitigated the stress of a Sunday afternoon in my own.
    All of the winding up for the week was transformed
    into winding down (no more waiting out).

    Could I pry the secrets yet? Could I circumvent the
    silence that my stern words might ultimately beget?
