To My Grandson Ian, Actor Extraordinaire

I’m not speaking as a proud grandmother

when I say last night’s performance

blew me away. I also want to  say

any resemblance between Alice Beneke

(with her propensity for making things worse

by turning them into maudlin verse) and me

is one hundred percent coincidental.
