Did you know that an eastern bluebird is a type of thrush? It reminds me of her eyes, but I've tried not to tell you. And did you know a bluebird has a red chest, like a robin? Bright red, like the shoes she wears even when it rains and the water soaks through. Did you know that a robin is also in the thrush family?
I can hear her steely-eyed hope--in the bluebird's trill. Did you know that chemotherapy can be administered by pill?
