Memory of a Balcony
(for Megan Taylor)

by Jessica Otto

Begin when you are scratched away.

Belonging once to the soft smell
of the wasp nest in your neighbor’s window,
you now belong to waking up
in a stillness that embraces you with
lesson arms a little like fear.

Say: This is a lovely morning
wherever you find yourself to exist.
