Remission

arched scapulae

frame the knotted weave

constricted invisibly

this space i cannot see

estimation and limitation

places where hands

undo laces

constructions tended

torn and mended

in a gentle way

.

i will tend my tinder

from fertile internal cinders

ash splays onto the garden path

a tender shoot bleeds through

the stony crack

a generosity in receiving light

and gifting back

.
