ILLUMINATION

The Body and the Mind

A tiny poem about letting go

A woman with a headwrap on stares into the distance. The picture is black and white.

I will go to war to protect my peace,
silently, knotting together
inch by inch of leftover fabric
to keep the sadness
you once brought me
far, far away.
