Spelling the World
by Jeffry Jensen

Maribel can spell "cat" in
a tub of bubbles, at the
breakfast table, in front of
a bald reference librarian.
She likes to hesitate on the
"t" just to add a bit of suspense.
Maribel has named every
creature she encounters "cat"
with a slow "t," even the
confused cricket that found its
way into the bathroom on a
Saturday night with a million
summer bubbles filling up
the known world.
