To My Daughter on the Day of Her Blessing

You grabbed my face today as if to say,

Don’t screw this up.

A tall order, considering the vernacular of the menu.

I would give you the world.

I would give you a double portion.

As one bearded and wizened.

Can I unroll your future for you, welcoming you to the award show of your life? And breathlessly ask,

Who are you going to wear?

Can I give you the combination to open your school locker?

Can I promise you a Black & White world and send you skipping to the fishing hole?

Can I tell you—who cannot speak—of how you were born? How of all the sands of the sea, you, our pearl.

Stretch out your new limbs and rock on a sea of arms.

Receive the blessing that falls from my lips.

Grab with your strong baby fingers the ones that I cannot say.

So that we together may have the double portion.
