A NOTE ON GRANDMA’S FRIDGE

Lewis Buxton

Open the curtains and let some light in.
Spread the table cloth across the kitchen.
Tell her to meet me at the station.

Make sure she has fresh food in,
last time she just had jam and bacon.
Open the curtains and let some light in.

Next Tuesday I’m taking her to London
to see the family – remind her it’s happening.
Tell her to meet me at the station.

The hanging baskets will need watering.
Turn the hob off, turn on the heating.
Open the curtains and let some light in.

Take out the bins. Remember recycling.
Change the light bulbs in the hallway ceiling.
Tell her to meet me at the station.

Hoover her bedroom. Dust keeps getting
in her lungs so she coughs all evening.
Open the curtains and let some light in.
Tell her to meet me at the station.
