A pair of pink hands is holding onto the wings of a folded, white paper crane. Their nails are painted neon green, blue and yellow.

Paper cranes

I once tried to fold 1000 paper cranes for you

But the cranes remained,

As you eventually left.

So when I found the cranes

Almost a decade later,

I bursted into tears

And wondered if somewhere –

Somewhere beyond us all,

You will suddenly remember me now and again too,

Just like so?
