                        quilt life.

this strange embroidering


lost rivers and

threads of belonging

sing pleasure,

a language of being.


this tongue,

this name,

this strange embroidering –


everyday love

and a stitching of longing.

threads of knowing


unexpected oceans

of handmade waves

carried dark thinking with light


carried water

carried politics

carried law –


the embroidery of trouble


dark cloth

new life

across threads of knowing.
