What to Expect of Heaven

At least some sense of matter and rust—eyes that
remember who you were, hands that know how
light feels—the old house, there, in a space between
clouds (your father on the porch and your mother)—
your dogs (all of them)—larkspur and birds (the
plain brown ones, the cardinals)—a place to sit and
listen in on those who are still alive, to remember
what living was like—a place to dream of breathing.
