but she loved to dress in costumes
and play with water guns.
and she had a barbie nose
dusted with freckles.
and she had hands
and arms
and shoulders.
and when she sat
she would become weightless
and her feet would float over her head.
and she would cling to every word I spoke
to keep from dissolving into nothing.
