[similar to Insomnia by Susan Barbour]



I have waved the worn wooden

wand before you,


demonstrated lush networks of

fortune that have been made lost.


I have brought words shepherded

from valleys, woven from wool,


tapestries plaited in vegetable

dye, grains in grassy hues.


Wise texts built again and again,

through eons and star-speckled epochs.


Minor prophets shaping textiles

out of particle dust.


*sonia di placido
