The gift shop

 

 

The gift shop

 

 

When Josephine leaves Ellis Island she is not yet sure what she takes away with her, and what she leaves behind in the glass cabinets, and she wonders if the gift shop sells little blue bottles of hope, gathered as carefully as saffron, to keep in a coat pocket and season the next day, and then the day when it is most needed.
