Sowing Circles

Standard

imageHe dined on her heart
as she did the dishes
her apron covering the hole
that she’d neatly made herself
a technique she’d learned
from her mother
how to stitch scraps back together
like an heirloom quilt missing batting
pretty but insubstantial
unable to provide real warmth
