Sarah comes to visit


We get a visit from my cousin
from PEI, Calgary, Guelph, Toronto, Montreal
and soon Vancouver
-- the ultimate Canadian girl.

No matter how overworked and underslept,
Sarah always enters like a burst of fireworks.

She makes herself at home --
scoops up chunks of my ice cream with her finger,
eats peanut butter out the jar with a spoon,
stirs up my thoughts with her words.

When she leaves I feel like writing
for the first time in weeks.
