old man winter expertly

old man winter expertly
embroiders entire
cities, gliding
through their
fabrics without
a hitch, as if he
were always
waiting, a pack
of needles in tow,
sharp points,
wide eyes

on your birthday –

on your birthday –
a cup of tea
to steep
our predictions,
contain our
luck while we
are lucky enough
to grasp it,
embroider yet
unrecognizable
stories, the tea
leaves in
our tapestry

with a little room,

when the world

when the world
shrinks, disparity
is a loosened
gown, suddenly
discovering
embroideries
harboring
so much
resentment

the year of the dragon finds us

the year of the dragon finds us
half in and half out,
suspended
on the whim of a second
sun, another moon,
and embroidered within
their cosmic
sleeves,
another timeline

after a time, memory

after a time, memory
becomes
an embroidered
thing,
and your smile
a loose thread
to be idly
pulled at
or gingerly tucked in

even without doing

even without doing
a single thing
differently, i am
not imagining that these
lines are deepening –
as if i am each day’s
drill held in, an
afternoon’s winding
thread lingering
over her embroidery,
the sunset’s lovesick
shadow, still tracing
each withering horizon
