Wonderful child with a heart like a dumpling.

 Dumpling heart


We knew when she was born.

The way she smiled; the

plumpness of her cheeks,

her round ribcage. She

was just a kid – but she sang

instead of crying.


She would gather things

in her arms. Anything.

Keys and shoes and onions,

the cat, flowers, milk.

She’d hold them together –

wrap them up.  The


girl was a miracle.

I mean it. Magnet and grout.

She had a heart wrapped

tightly in sweet starch.

All the good in the

world inside it.
