In Praise Of Grandma Mollie

Who will be ninety-three this May.

A Gemini through and through, curious and witty and wise.

Whose parents were Russian immigrants, escaping the pogroms.

Who looked like Greta Garbo.

Who made the best chicken soup.

Who says things like “well, she’s a catholic, and he’s a prostitute”

Mollie-propisms.

Who still has so much to say.
