Cambridge: Cambridge UniversityPress, Her voice would croon, all bound for morning town. She would stroke my hair and stay until I slept. When I couldnt sleep, she would tell me to imagine myself in a bubble over the sea. I would close my eyes and oat there, listening to the waves. I would look down at the shimmering water. When the bubble broke, I would hear her voice, making a new bubble to catch me.

But now when I try to imagine myself over the sea, the bubble pops right away. I have to open my eyes with a start before I crash. Mom is too sad to take care of me. She and Dad split up right before May started high school, and after May died almost two years later, she went all the way to California. With just Dad and me at our house, its full of echoes everywhere. I go back in my mind to when we were all together. I can smell the sizzle of the meat from Mom making dinner. It sparkles.

I can almost look out the window and see May and me in the yard, collecting ingredients for our fairy spells. Her house is a different kind of empty. Its not full of ghosts. Its quiet, with shelves set up with rose china, and china dolls, and rose soaps meant to wash out sadness.

But always saved for when they are really needed, I guess.

We just use Ivory in the bathroom. I am looking out the window now in her cold house, from under the rose quilt, to nd the rst star. I wish you could tell me where you are now.

I mean, I know. Its dark out. Youre out there. Somewhere, somewhere. Id like to let you in. Dear Elizabeth Bishop, I want to tell you about two things that happened in English today. We read your poem, and I talked in class for the rst time.

Ive been in high school for two weeks now, and so far I had been spending most of the period looking out the window, watching the birds ying between phone wires and twinkling aspens. I was thinking about this boy, Sky, and wondering what he sees when he closes his eyes, when I heard my name. I looked up. The birds wings started beating in my chest. Buster was staring at me. Will you read? I didnt even know what page we were on. I could feel my mind going blank.

But then Natalie leaned over and ipped my Xerox to the right poem. It started like this: The art of losing isnt hard to master; so many things seem lled with the intent to be lost that their loss is no disaster. At rst, I was so ner vous. But while I was reading, I started listening, and I just understood it. Lose something every day. Accept the uster of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.

The art of losing isnt hard to master. Then practice losing farther, losing faster: None of these will bring disaster. I lost my mothers watch. And look! I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster, some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent. I miss them, but it wasnt a disaster. Even losing you the joking voice, a gesture I love I shant have lied.

Its evident the art of losings not too hard to master though it may look like Write it! I think my voice might have been shaking too much, like the poem earthquaked me. The room was dead quiet when I stopped. Buster did what she does, which is to stare at the class with her big bug eyes and say, What do you think?

Natalie glanced in my direction. I think she felt bad because everyone was looking not at Mrs. Buster, but at me. So she raised her hand and said, Well, of course shes lying. Its not easy to lose things. Then everyone stopped looking at me and looked at Natalie. Buster said, Why are some things harder to lose than others?

Natalie had a no-duh sound in her voice when she answered. Because of love, of course. The more you love something, the harder it is to lose. I raised my hand before I could even think about it. I think its like when you lose something so close to you, its like losing yourself.

Thats why at the end, its hard for her to write even. She can hardly remember how. Because she barely knows what she is anymore. The eyes all turned back to me, but after that, thank god, the bell rang. I gathered up my stuff as quickly as I could. I looked over at Natalie, and she looked like maybe she was waiting for me. I thought this might be the day that she would ask if I wanted to eat lunch with her and I could stop sitting at the fence.

But Mrs. Buster said, Laurel, can I talk to you a moment? I hated her then, because Natalie left. I shifted in front of her desk. She said, How are you doing? My palms were still sweaty from talking in class. Um, ne. I noticed that you didnt turn in your rst assignment. The letter? I stared down at the uorescent light reected in the oor and mumbled, Oh, yeah.

She and Dad split up right before May started high school, and after May died almost two years later, she went all the way to California. With just Dad and me at our house, its full of echoes everywhere. I go back in my mind to when we were all together. I can smell the sizzle of the meat from Mom making dinner. It sparkles.

Accept the uster of lost door keys, the hour badly spent. The art of losing isnt hard to master. Then practice losing farther, losing faster: places, and names, and where it was you meant to travel.

None of these will bring disaster. I lost my mothers watch. And look! I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster, some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent. I miss them, but it wasnt a disaster. Even losing you the joking voice, a gesture I love I shant have lied. Its evident the art of losings not too hard to master though it may look like Write it!

I noticed that you didnt turn in your rst assignment. The letter? I stared down at the uorescent light reected in the oor and mumbled, Oh, yeah. I didnt nish it yet. All right.May was a real moon who everyone flocked to.

I noticed that you didnt turn in your rst assignment. If I wanted to read about a main character that I can't relate to, whose grief isn't even present, who falls in love too easily, who lets herself be completely bent by peer pressure, who can't really relate to her family The story is told in a series of letters written to dead celebrities. It begins as an assignment in English class where Laurel, our mc, writes letters to dead people, from the likes of Judy Garland, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse.

Thats why at the end, its hard for her to write even.
