Don’t look over her shoulder
While she is talking to you
Don’t twinkle your rolling orbs
Above her head.


Don’t you

Know that you were born at least
Twenty years later than she?
What you think you know she knew
Well before you came to be.


Life can feel important to
Each one of us. It’s true. But,
we are a treasure greater
Than anything we do.


Turn your eyes upon her
Look fully in her face. Hear
Every word she speaks because

you’ll be in her place.
