Flight Patterns

by Aubrie Cox, Taylorville, IL

Because I promised I would teach you origami on our first date, paper was the first thing I threw into my purse this morn- ing. But instead, when I burst into tears, you fold my hand into yours and gently crease the veins from knuckle to wrist.

There are two main ways to make a paper crane. The first is tidy and neat, like the ones in movies and photographs of shrines. The second skips a step near the end, which relaxes the final fold so that when you pinch the base of the neck and tug on the tail, it flaps its wings.
