how theΒ stitched suspicion
wraps around me

replaces the glue
to keep me steady

in flux.

the ducks

got out of their row.


my friends
think they have the show


how the deep incision 
snaps the ground free


  1. What I love about your poetry Vanessa is you have to spend time with the words and music and then sit with the poetry for a while looking for the clues. I may be way off the mark but I get a sense of darkness and consequences that can emanate from idle gossip.

    • Aww thank you!
      the stitches thing kind of happened when I pondered ‘vendetta’ a little bit more…whether it’s something she inherited from others with a whole other back story…and yes, definitely issues with undone-ing πŸ™‚
