Celeste

She is called Teacher
who knows all the birds –

Children call her that, walking
through the woods, or by
the lake.  Parents, too, because
their children do, ask her

What is that bird called?

And she who knows all birds
says, His name is George.

George the Cardinal

she wears her multicoloured
dress when she tells stories;
she calls it her storyteller’s dress –
because it is..  it boasts a dozen
separate and distinct colours;
each colour owning its own story,
each story owning three more
stories for her to tell … at least … that’s
the way she tells it.  sometimes, one
colour will run into another, and stories
will blend; that is where new stories
come from.  the storyteller says this,
looking over her right shoulder … as
she begins to turn over her right
shoulder.  sometimes, someone will
take a piece of a story home with them
because that is all they can remember.
they will tell that piece, and they will pull
another piece from their pocket … and
they will search for other pieces of stories
in a small bag of scraps of stories that
everyone carries with them … or
they wil catch up a piece of story the wind
tumbles over the toes of their shoes.  and
there are more stories, newer stories, or
older ones newly rediscovered.
the storyteller turns slowly around … then
around, again … and slowly more quickly
around until stories are flying from her –
grey stories, and brown stories; and
they are black and they are white –
catch them!  hold on to them!  look them
in the eye!  listen!  the stories will tell themselves.
