This is a story about a girl who
fixes and lifts and carries and
if she stops, who will know she’s
somebody, and if she stops
maybe she’ll be nobody, a
where a person was, where a
mother would have been, if she hadn’t
stopped lifting, this girl in the story
who fixes and fixes, this
girl who carries.
