A stitch in time
And the smiling cat on the sweater
Smiles a little wider
At the face that rescued him,
His fur matted and ears torn,
From the box marked
“Second-hand clothing
Looking for a good home.”
Another stitch;
I am an expert surgeon
Sewing up a woolen heart.
I can’t help but anticipate
The moment when I’m finished
And go back to the others
That saved a piece of clothing’s life
And brag,
“Well I saved nine.”
