Sadako

a real little girl who lived in Japan

born to be a runner

a runner before she walked

brown highlights in her dark hair

looked at the ceiling

wondered if her grandmother’s spirit

was floating somewhere above the altar

in Hiroshima when

the United States Air Force dropped a bomb

her courage made Sadako

a heroine
