Love with open hands. - Madeleine L'Engle

First byline, however unofficial
Eyelashes too long for my face
Tattered, paint-spattered
Sweatshirt sleeves
Leaves torn from
Swedish verb bibles
Weave me together
Old choir music
Long since filed away
Race numbers
my pitiful time scribbled on them
The sea of jazz in my head
Old ski passes
Weave me together
Glasses I wore in third grade
The track letter I didn't deserve
Torn swim caps
College brochures offering me 22,000 a year
Weave me together
Tie it all up
with strings from a piano
yarn from my basket
finish it off with a safety pin
from my band blouse
(or was it the one from my
cross-country uniform?)

"You're a great wizard, Harry."
"Not as good as you."
"Me?! Books! And cleverness! There are more important things, Harry--friendship, and bravery, and--oh, Harry, just be careful."

Yes. This is you and you are right. Well done.
