| CITY ON HIS BACK | RITE OF WAY | IF BODIES HAVE VOICES | THE DECISIVE/THE UNRESOLVED


Tailor

slams down
needle
that threads bones
knits skin,
muscles without force
to hold to hold
back,
blunt-edged
riveted
Pavement
that corners you,
family that falls apart
less flayed fingers stay their sockets-
-father from your grip fallen
mother falling
sister/wife
child child child
whose stubborn wants
you canít still
               & hold
in place
through the eye of your voice
                     & the thrust of your hand
.
