Rumpled & crumpled

Crumpled
Heart

My rumpled clothes

I don’t iron

Anymore

My snickering nose

For I laugh about
How things go
How my body
Knows about
Things

& limits
& choices
& clothes
It knows

We work
For change
As we go
We throw
Away time
Too
We know

That’s how
It is

Rumpled
& crumpled
& crawling
& calling
We sew
