Beyond Time and Space

Grandpop and Chaya in the 80's. Poem by Chaya Silberstein
Tomorrow, the United States
will awake to a new president
but not my grandpa.
He'll be off on an adventure
beyond time and space.
I wonder if he'll meet Robin Hood
or King Arthur battling dragons?
He used to take us into their lair
on a sofa full of books.
We fought over who would ride
shotgun when he  took us for pizza
but we all had a front-row seat
in the tales he told.
Today my grandpa is 96,
tomorrow he will be timeless.
