Even if a woman sits at a loom
Slowly I learned that to pull her sentences apart was also to pull apart individual bodies. One had to learn them in relation. A sequence of words placed in one’s mouth become more intimate with familiarity. The charge deepens in texture, skin beneath the surface swells red.
