Patchwork Woman

Weaving relationships
Bits and shreds of lace
and wool

Jersey, linen, gabardine, cotton

In a life; diaper cotton, velvet princess dress
itchy wool socks
Graduation chiffon

Torn wedding dress or dresses
support hose, satin pillows winding shroud.
Faded, overwashed dreams
Burlap hard times
Ephemeral art
patched and repatched
into new lives
female art
Until it too wears out
and is added
to the new quilt.

Oct. '96
