She came

into the world at the same time

the Endangered Species Act passed.

This accounts for everything.


She wasn’t wearing any shoes. That is all

she would remember

from the whole ordeal. No one

else was there to retell any other

details. Her failing

memory was the nearest

reiliable source for a vaild


She was trying and trying to stuff a bell inside a drawer.


Was it someone else or me

who crated her up

in heavy wood,

blocked, squared, cubed—

shipped or spent, either way sealed—

protected by default?
