      A Gift
       
      Just when you seem to yourself
      nothing but a flimsy web
      of questions, you are given
      the questions of others to hold
      in the emptiness of your hands,
      songbird eggs that can still hatch
      if you keep them warm,
      butterflies opening and closing themselves
      in your cupped palms, trusting you not to injure
      their scintillant fur, their dust.
      You are given the questions of others
      as if they were answers
      to all you ask. Yes, perhaps
      this gift is your answer.
