May is National Sewing Month! Here is today's headline poem.
What separates me from you now?
Is a fine line
On the end of a thimble
My grandma used while threading
A needle through
The buttons she kept in my mother's old
That is now ours to use
When we come to visit
Like a seashell
Smooth and molded into
A better version of itself
With the same lampshades
Like eyes to see what might have been missed
And bedside manners
Like a mermaid's key that unlocks
The gate that hasn't been open in years
Because all of this wonderful
Paint by number art
means more now
That she isn't around.
