Trail Maintenance

Going back to photograph
the little girl’s fall
It’s actually quite helpful
that the toilet-paper-roll
binoculars she was carrying
are still here. Picking them up
an earwig falls out, keeps falling
through tiny holes

There is only one miracle –
when what should have happened
hasn’t. The children
though they are just recently
born, seem to start each
sentence with remember
