Teach your grandma to take a selfie

Eleanor Carter had been a real dish—
“like Wedgwood Blue china,”
she would say.
She had ripened into an Heirloom tomato,
ready for Jesus to claim
& pluck from the aging vine.
When she learned how
to take a selfie,
her poodle—
all ribbons & bows—
photobombed it,
becoming an Internet sensation.
And Eleanor found that she was no longer
the cat’s meow,
but rather,
Cuddles was the dog’s bow-wow.
