These Things Are Fossil Feels (2)

Embroidered on the flat of

sternum bones

are brassica leaves.

We chose purple.

We were good

with our hands in other ways

(But)

Stitching - task to delicate for frantic hands.

Your thumb bends too far back

for straight needles,

my fingers shake too much for

bruising thread.

But weaving and pulling

goes shaking thread,

weaving and pulling

goes arching needle.

We puncture pictures of

sore chlorophyll so bright

cartilage cannot forget.

You do not mind my tremor

and I sleep in the curves of your hands.

We press our leaves

on top of one another

heave-

breathe

on the flats of our chest.

Our pulse beats purple.
