Maxine Kumin Taken Inside This is the beauty of books. They arrive inside us in the most peculiar ways wrote Colum McCann who so loved James Joyce that he ate a flake of the first edition of Ulysses that had fallen onto the blue cloth in a private nook of the Berg Collection Reading Room where he could look but not touch. I learned to read and write. I took inside who made the world? God. Also how to pray the rosary. To this day I can say it straight through, bead by bead the only Jewish child at the Convent of the Sisters of St. Joseph next door. At the end of the corridor a twicelifesize Jesus hung in pain to my horror. This was before the long yellow buses. My parents discussed public school a mile away, too far for the youngest child and only girl to walk alone. One day longing put my bad right hand in my classmate's desk. That night in bed rolling the beads I told the rosary and fell asleep blessed by Jesus 136 but where was He the next day when all hell broke loose? I walked the lonely mile
