Rose van Son

Family Visit  

when her brother visits
he brings eggs
from his mother’s hens
& a very large pumpkin
composted in seed
to make risotto

her sister brings chocolates

and under her arm
her mother brings olives
a mirrored jar

they float
to the surface
to remind her
of where she is from
