2020-09-09 – Knitter’s Nerves

she’s the good witch stitching
magic into lips worn
like leather,

it burns too deep in the pit
to be dismissed,
as kiss,

crawl down from space-
curl up in room’s
lone corner,

i’ll be your firm but
lazy babysitter,

if what you desire’s a
cloudy cover,

i’ve got yarn but must
confess i’m clumsy
as the ‘knitter’..


learning to work
a rusty needle

for the scabs once
my fingers.

Scabby Threadman

    • That’s amazing! I’ve always ha the desire to but my fine motor skills aren’t great. I am better suited in areas with far larger margins for error! Haha! Thanks for sharing that with me. 🙂
