this is how we get across—
when pink is a necessity
we meet for lunch and Susan’s taking pictures—
people celebrate . . .
what we don’t understand—
for smallest, delicate and evanescent thoughts—
our pictures travel back and forth
in boats of willow wands
as we prepare what we will gather, what we’ll weave
to get ourselves across.
