Juliana 
Known for packing everything including the kitchen sink  
And everywhere she’d go, her wrapper went  
This lengthy fabric of many wonders  
It was a happy cape for superheroes  
Rapunzel’s mane for Disney maidens  
An ója to holster babies on backs 
And on those baking hot afternoons, mama’s wrapper was the compromise between naked and clothed  
My comforter on feverish nights 
A mat at Christmas when there were more bodies than beds  
A cushion to balance a pail of water on my head 
A tent. A shield. A curtain. A throw. An apron. A piggy bank.  
I never thought I would have one without the other  
Mama’s wrapper without mama.
