Piled hat high on fences

Well worn linen

Tangling the warmth in 

The breath; slow and deep

The day; dawning

The space between us is sewn together

Each stitch lovingly darned into place

Threads of concern, of friendship and love

cast across the web

reinforcing intersecting strands

The wide world; an exquisite salvaged patch

to be worn upon knees

When does comfort

or ease

or self-inflicted oblivion...
