Comment on this Work


it is slow, this stitching
of life together;
jaggedness everywhere

I am forever
reciting, remembering,
reminding myself:

it is not
'blood is thicker
than water' but

'the blood of the covenant
is thicker than
the water of the womb'

the fabric is stained
but the thread is strong
I fold the cloth over, resolute

gather my soldiers together
in tight stitches
these new wars we will win
