Days waltzing past
Catching other’s eyes
About
to
speak

All about
Noise
All about
Bramble
Ancestors on our tongues

Stitched praise
Holed praise
Torn praise
Patched Praise
Repair

Repair


Repair

Waiting
Changing
Whispered
Declaimed
Struggle, love, grief

The day’s sharp sparkle
Crackling winter air
On the brink
the brim
the edge of forever

Praise

Something better
down the road





* Adaptation of Elizabeth Alexander’s “Praise Song for the Day”
