At First

 

cups
             and plates
                                     slide
             off
                     her hand

          fragments

             on the kitchen floor as

          she       stumbles

                          into furniture

                                        falling

                                        through

                                        her own feet

        the clockface a blur stairs curve back

        over the rainbow

        as she sets moulded melting into her
chair

Out in the garden her Grandson pauses

Wooden sword poised

To finish off a demon only he can see.
