Page 18 - You never saw the sea or the pelicans winged like angels. In the end, your visions were embarrassing: a granddaughter sleeping with Satan; a voice in every corner, beckoning; your husband, the blind man lost in prayer, a daddy that would punish. Your daughters, aging, won't talk about the end. I do. I take the space in which you lived, your life, and put it in my pocket, and name you.
