Melanie Abandon

To ward and tend genius, just name it. You
can’t know how it falls together.
Someone was sitting in the chandelier
folded up like a pamphlet, math
she could almost describe in words everyone took
up like a ball and caught. I understood her.
I have one of her proofs, knowing now what I
couldn’t before. I carry it with me. Always. I met
her when she had no idea what she had. No idea.
