We watch the children as they line up for the bus one-by-one. As you voice your last concern, the windows clack. Goodbye, Mom. Dorothy meets us at the front door after school. She’s reciting plants: Azalea, the birch, the linden and the saucer magnolia, her favorite. We watch the children as they line up for the bus. You tell your last concern—the windows shut. Hello, life.
