I'm socially awkward.
THIS IS A YEAR OF THE DRAGON CONTEST ENTRY
I Talk to Grandpa
This is a July Year of the Dragon 100-word contest entry. 100 words. Sometimes I miss being a kid.
I talk to Grandpa,
but he never answers back.
Mommy says he can hear me even though he's not here anymore.
I don't know what that means,
So sometimes I talk really loud.
Grandma still makes him dinner,
but I don't know how he eats it.
"Moah," she says. "Grandpa like plenny rice."
I give him a big scoop,
the kind that falls off the paddle.
She sets down his plate at his altar and prays.
Sometimes I lay in his room when it's hot.
I press my face against the carpet and
The house moves like it's exhaling slowly.
