St. Marie of the Incarnation

before I was born,

several other children

had seen the light of day

but all died in their infancy.

mother’s heart leapt

into a cruel famine.

I tumbled off of a horse,

broke bones I didn’t know


The white splinters turned

to paper, folded themselves

into cranes

and flew.
