Do you know
what makes her special,
that she hires people
better than she is?

Because,
most often,
they don’t.

Something inside her— 
fearlessness that throws its arms around
superiority—that can make tasks
and people and air and beliefs and herself—
stir.

She does it again and again
as her work grows green and leafy.
She has her disciples,
surprisingly few.
