We got a call this morning: a new liver for Annika.
That needs an exclamation point, but I'm too nervous.
Please please please keep her safe.
Please please please send peace to this donor family.
She lay on her back
for a few seconds,
at the textured ceiling
with the mysterious
spaghetti sauce stain.
flapping her arms and legs
there on the floor, as if to swish
the imaginary snow
into a snow angel.
"Falling down is also a gift!" says she.
