As a kid, you wanted to be a juggler.
Even now you hope
that one of the balls that Dana,
a white bull and wonderful mother,
tosses up is a star that bolts from her chest--
she doesn’t drop a single one.
You could stay here all night,
but you’ve imposed long enough.
You leave a gift, songs
made from blue delphiniums.
