It’s funny how these places where we leave our dead remain the center of our lives for so long- we visit them, care for them and as time goes by we leave them to their new homes and say how beautiful their resting place is.
Besides: They have a new family among the dead.
Maybe we stay away after a spell because we’re jealous of that.
I will be honest.

her breasts were plump
her laugh rang like bells

Now days when something goes wrong, we hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete- or we pull the plug and reset.
Back in the day- we jiggled it.
We jiggled electrical cords, Rabbit Ears ( google it ), we jiggled our loose teeth and the handles on vending machines and with the right touch you could jiggle a pinball machine and score points. We jiggled the dials and buttons on our TV sets and phones.
We even jiggled the loose change in our pockets.
Jiggling use to solve a lot of our problems.
Those were the good old days.
