he can feel her brain working
from across the room
because it is largely the same model
anxiety displaced by preparation
butterflies moving in formation

capitol of the Commonwealth,
capitol the Confederacy
ebullient, overflowing with stories
of fears faced, victories won
her feet barely touching the ground
