Of Holding Beauty


Our UPS driver thinks I like him now.
I couldn’t help smiling like a girl in love
When he walked in carrying the two boxes
I had just been thinking should arrive
At any time. Heart beating fast biting
Bottom lip I reached out like the newest
Of mothers asking the nurse to hold
Her child. Mine. Waitingwaitingwaiting
For months weeks days to sign
My name whisk the treasure away
Find a blade cut the tape and hold
The Ocean at the End of the Lane in my hands.
