Origami Survives


Origami Survives by Kara Johnstad

Radio babble babble –
Desk swept clear. Yesterday’s table.
He had dinner with me last night.
Proper…yes, ever so proper was he.
A tiny bread crumb fell
I cunningly try to divert his attention
with my hand movements and laughter
“you should be an actress”
“me?” I say coyly—-??—“I am, but why do you say that???”
“cause you try to pretend that I didn´t see,
what you just did,” ha ha ha
high awkward laughs escape his small lips
When the evening draws to an end.
We stand at the door –
20 chopticks between us and a bowl of silence
His exact and small mannerisms and soft spoken voice
make me nervous.
Facing hallway awkwardness,
he takes a quick breath and asks courageously,
“Kar(l)a, would it be possible for me to give you a hug?”
Eyebrows up, eyes widened.

How odd. How sweet. What an evening.
Folded into a bird.
Origami survives.
