My mother just handed your story to me one day
I couldn’t tell you how old it is, only that the words
are perpetually sixteen
Fresh, like the rain on page 275,
(the one with the greasy thumb print in the lower right-hand corner)
The glossy, uneven liquid that covered the carousel she rode on
and pushed its smell endlessly toward the frozen skyscrapers of New York
Indeed, sometimes, and always with some bit of hesitation,
I tell myself that behind the thick, ugly cover
