When I hear my uncle's voice on the telephone

 
 
 

My uncle's voice is
a sheet of glass.
He means to renovate
my soul. When
he speaks I drift away.
He believes
in gardening at night.
He's always lived
in the city. His beautiful wife died of breast cancer.
I couldn't cope
when I heard the news.
So I wrote this poem
instead. They had three sons.
Too successful.
