A Stitch across Time This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

July 14, 2010
If I could, I would,
stitch the next happy hour towards good,
sew up the tip, the end, the noose,
till time’s pocket lets no true terror loose.

A stitch in time could save us then,
closed between now and the end,
a charm to work a spell to toss,
a door closed and a dream lost.

But I’m just a tailor,
an artist with cloth and thread;
not a dreamer dressed as a jailer,
or a savior for the dead.
