Rebecca Johnson, 13, the winner of Poetry Contest held by Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth, was interviewed by CNN yesterday. — Wow, Rebecca. At 13, you are already the national winner in this prestigious contest. What are your favorite subjects at school? — Math, physics, chemistry, biology, French literature. — Wow! Apart from poetry, what other talents do you have? — Oil painting, classical guitar, rumba dancing. — Oh my god. You surely are gifted. Do you play sports? — Tennis, soccer, mountain skiing. — Unbelievable. All that, at 13! Do you have any other hobbies? — Collecting baseball cards, train spotting, sex. — Excuse me? Did you say sex? What… — Classical, anal, oral, lesbian, BDSM. — Oh no. I got it. Girl, you're so young, but you are being "a troll" as they say in social networks. — A troll, a hobbit, an elf, and a goblin in the Lord of the Rings play in our school theater.

It is as if I am a wind, invisible, leaving no trace — not even dust. From wind I came, and to wind I shall return; no one knows from where I entered this world, and no one is to see where I go. Why do I feel so ephemeral? What is it about my state of mind that I imagine I have touched nothing in this world, that my fingers leave no print to whatever I handle? Perhaps not even wind: for wind, through sheer persistence, may wear down stone, and I have not such endurance. It is a riddle, then—what am I? What is less than wind, moves through this world as if it never had been? This ghost may one day have had a life, but such is easy to forget when wandering without aim, searching for something he is not quite sure what it may be. I am just a trick of the eye: look away for a quick second and you will see an empty space where I should be.
