Close up of a tapestry

January 2023 MoonBite: Emerging

  • Text is in the body. Illustrations include woodcut style images and taspestry.

As light breaks the day
As death meets encrusted love

I pray
Please forgive these bones pressing
upon earth oozing fragrance

I pray 
Blood becomes 
a skin bag hanging, an altar

Festering kindness

A golden yolk worth eating
A helpless prayer thrown

To a thousand flames
