Brad Kent

I call my mother early if
not often, to avoid the risk
of bumping up against
sunset when her first drink
is poured, a very reasonable
Pinot Noir. This is the hour

when Brad Kent who comes
to fix the things that break
becomes a little Mexican.
She wonders how he got
that name & if I think it’s
weird that he’s her friend.
