Circles
Madalin, Age 11, Lewisville, TX

I am speaking of circles
Circles people make at the table.
A ring that people find around their napkins,
gently placed on a round plate.
Those are circles that can't be broken.
The thing about FAMILY circles
is that they can be broken.
Like mine was.
One by one, old, great, hearts break down
and go to sleep.
Now my family is no longer a circle.
It is a small, straight line.
