Hi, my name is Blythe Baird.

I'm an author and spoken word poet. And today I am so excited to be reading one of my favorite pieces ever.

I think this poem does a gorgeous job of concluding the piece without tying a perfect bow on the ending. This poem is by Aimee Nezhukumatahil, and it's called “The Purchase.”
