Weave Me Together

First byline, however unofficial
Eyelashes too long for my face
Tattered, paint-spattered
Sweatshirt sleeves
Leaves torn from
Swedish verb bibles
Weave me together
Old choir music
Newspapers
Long since filed away
Race numbers
my pitiful time scribbled on them
The sea of jazz in my head
Old ski passes
Weave me together
Glasses I wore in third grade
The track letter I didn't deserve
Torn swim caps
College brochures offering me 22,000 a year
Weave me together
Tie it all up
with strings from a piano
yarn from my basket
finish it off with a safety pin
from my band blouse
(or was it the one from my
cross-country uniform?)
