Legacy

Three of my sister’s granddaughter’s

choose jewelry from the box.

My mother’s gold watch for a small wrist

a bracelet from the Pow Wow

given to me by Sandra One Feather.

And when they were leaving

they gave me a magnet for the refrigerator

( somehow they’d figured out who I am)

It says “Yay Feminists”

They are in their early twenty’s

and don’t have any of the issues

my generation of women

had to work through.

I dreamt of Athena

and the spirit of fiery Aries

incarnated in them.

” You could be President” I said…

(such a old lady thing to say)

Great Aunt Sally

How’s that for a title?
