She Knows

She knows she’s going to die.
The way she watches her grandson,
Reads every word as joy.
She knows the numbers,
He’s learning to count backward,
Only go forward.

She’s smiling easy ruby ready.
Cheeked checking out,
The way he smiles
When he knows she’s smiling
Because she knows something
He’s just learned.
