in march


I lost my friend
in January
a month with leafless trees
and overcast skies

She made provisions
for E and V
to receive monthly tokens
of love, of community

"Choose a month, send books
to keep the curiosity going."

In March,
I send a token of community
carefully curated
by their mother's love

I lost my friend
in January
a month with light and love
and intellectual curiosity
