not recognizing which is which

understanding that
we are all deplorables
knits together years

of doing and undoing –

here’s to the stitches

here’s to the stitches
that keep us from
falling apart,
the strands that tie
those long breaths
we hold just

clearing the first row
across your corn on

stitches, how cleanly
you hook the kernels,
dig in between. it’s
quite a breeze after
that, not overlooking
a pinch of patience
