Her clothing comes from beyond.
Meaning I don’t know where or how

only that sewing can be
extra-terrestrial at times.

Stitches are both random
and pattern, like perfume

or illusion’s shoes, silver bead
slippers. Due to her fear of nature

birds bring grapes, fish,
balls of mesh. Love occurs,

under stale star light
my marionette freckles.
