I teach by example. I teach on Friday nights.
I use the bed as a diorama. The chest of drawers
stores baby clothes I once fit inside:
my body holds bodies that went before.
I curate my box of souvenirs. Everything is labeled
with place and date. I have a folder with
your name on it—I want to include you
on my tax return. I consistently make mistakes
but I’ve signed up to stop caring. I’m putting
the welcome mat out where no one can see it.
