By the end of this, she will be very good
at putting little things into little boxes.
She will know how to erase wayward lines
so precisely that the process does not
disturb those little things in the little boxes,
and what to do when the tiny lines begin to
struggle against the logical entrapment.
She will know how to rigorously control
and to feel proud for it,
the lack of chaotic squiggles, the absence of colour,
and letters that look exactly like one another.
