hope {and other smallish things that sing} 

she tucks it in pockets 
and lockets pressed near her 
heart, jumpstarted by its tiny zing.

there’s a fleck of fuzz in there, 
too. a baby stone of azure 
blue. a crumb of sand. a strand 

of scarlet string. a wee adieu. a few
tiny buttons
and other tender things.
