POETRY Reading: Birthday, by Linda O’Connell

Birthday by Linda O’Connell
for Libby

Imagine I say happy,
and write the word ‘birthday’
and put it in an envelope along with
a pink peony, and run it down to
the post office.
When you open the letter all the
beautiful petals will fall and cling to you,
and you will understand how much–
just how much we love you.
