Three tanka in Gusts 18

I want to go
back home to Cincinnati
losing his voice
my brother tells us
where he wants to be buried

his daughter
rests her head on his shoulder…
a man
people say
I would never like

on my birthday
searching for missing keys…
what happened
to the wisdom
that comes with old age?
