She tucks her daughter into bed, soft tiny arms draped around her bear, button eyes brown and searching. Soft scratchy, filled with guts of white stuffing there's a stain on it's face from when she took it outside, tea party, the bear sitting across from her in a small bright orange plastic chair, she poured the tea into his mouth and it dribbled down his chin. There were goldfish crackers, crumbs everywhere. This bear, made in a factory in Asia, pieced together with machines and old weathered fingers, now this American girl's best friend. Her mom listens to the faint sound of breathing, like a clock. The air is cool and sleepy.
