"Protractor," Jane Hirshfield

punch-in-the-face-poetry:

A window is only a window when stepped away from.

To swim in deep water should feel no different from shallow,
and yet it does.

Losses are so. Split into yellows and blues.

A child’s protractor proves it: what begins near quickly
grows far, once the lines are allowed to.

As two are in a room, then only one.

Death on one side of the clear glass,
not-death on the other.
Neither saying a word from inside the enlarging.

Something electric for this long, long winter.

So fortunate to have met this brilliant, humble, and kind artist. One of the best perks of my job.

My mother is painting my nails black.
I’m six or seven. It’s Halloween.
“I want to be a girl,” I say.
It’s 1990 or 1991 and everyone who has died
and is dying enters my childhood bathroom.
I don’t know these boys (I don’t know you).
My mother is asking me “why”—
why can’t I take this test?…
