Among other things: A Bird

by nicolecallihan

I have fallen in love with this book
which Anna gave Eva for her birthday last year.
And lately, I am also in love
with poems and my girls and just being here.
All morning I have been watching the saddest news.
I stare at my computer and cry:
14 small coats hanging on hooks.
I keep waiting for Ella to wake so I can go to her and nurse her
but the house stays quiet.
I wonder when the snow will come again.
