I’ve Got New rules

i measure time
stitch by
careful stitch
my needle
smoothly gliding
through
the fabric
rhythmic
measured
the threads
weaving
a kind of
peace
with each
neat x
placed
I measure meaning
syllable by
painstaking
syllable
my blood
of ink
alternately
rushing
stumbling
seizing
a breath
such deep
sacred breath
exhaled
with each
word
wrestled
free
