The essential facts are:
If I live inside you
And you’re stitched into me
We’re sorted safely together [Never Apart].
You are the gauzy one.
You are sewn (deep.) [Take a breath]
Evasively full of patches and seams.
Forgetfully tugging at the stained thread.
(You want to leave?)
You’re wild in this autumn light,
In your ‘getting-somewhere-costume”
Going nowhere. [Listen to me now]
Your red juice on your lips
Rippling like a river: in and out
For the meanwhile--you are here.
For the time being--until you break loose.
