A Skipping Lesson
by Maja Trochimczyk

One Two Three
En Deux Troix
Ein Zwei Drei

she learned to
count like the

she skips up the steps
and stops at the top


she listens to stories
of her ancestors
deep within
her veins

Yee Uhr Sahn
Suh Woo Lyo

blood circling
from her heart
to her breath


she'll learn to count
all the bright red hats
on the way through the city

in Chinese

Yee Uhr Sahn
Suh Woo Lyo
Chee Bah Jyo
