S: Adventures with Little Garrett

BC: SECOND BIRTHDAY CHARM FOR GARRETT You point: that in the world and that, and that, naming the world again. And so it must be. For in our rented names the floor no longer answers to “floor” and falls away from the walls. Smallest one, in your pointing you remind us that the crumb on the floor, the opening of the door wait for us, each single thing because your speechlessness is benediction. Where did you meet before the nap of the rug, the rasp of tile-floor grout that you will bow to them kneel down, unfold the tendril of your finger and patient, receive their many-tongued greetings? You send out your foot like a scout into the unknown. It wobbles alone in space above the stair below. I watch your cobbling slow descent, each foot with the faith of a water-witcher’s trembling willow. To turn a page like a door feeling its heft and hinging in the fingers, to peer deliberately into the landscape of glyphs and letters, my reader not reading let me read like you. with love, Grandpa Herrstrom
