Hand-Me-Downs

(for Meri)

when she was born

I thought of everything I’d give her:

colored pencils for sketching

like her great-grandma Julia

pastel paints

like her grandma June

and Contee crayons

like her Dad

she took the ballet lessons

I always wanted

and practiced the piano

like I failed to

she chose to be a teacher

a teacher and a Mom

like me

and the too-tight blazer

I handed off to her today

fits her perfectly
