Dutiful Grandkid

The thing about my family is that

If they wanted me

To call my senile grandparents

And speak to them about how I am now

Him, they would have asked me to do it by now.

They actually would have demanded

See– all my previous interactions with at least

One side of my grandparents has been

Controlled and meticulous, I have been a dutiful grandkid

For many years and now I am one of the ones

Who doesn’t get brought up because it’s

Awkward as fuck.

I can’t tell if I should be sad,

Relieved… or perhaps mad? So instead I am simply

Understanding. I don’t really want to make

My grandmother upset, either.

Oddly enough it is more respectful in my family

To fuck off, than it is

To give a fuck.
