P Sketches

P says she loves shadows, details only painters see.

I read her the May Swenson poem the psychic saw.

It lays out a plan for the new year: my hands will be birds

lighting on the pages of a sketchbook that P says

shows over time the way we learn, the acts we bring into being.

Hiding in my bag the books we never get to.

Five chairs she liked in art class for their secrets.
