How far is true enough? ~Jori Graham
Where does the violent plot
of your life cut itself in two?
Or in scraps to spread
its bewildered parts
throughout each room
shuddering on its own foundation?
Plot lines run hidden underground
yet surface in the cracked ceiling plaster
and along the walls of your bedroom
Lines perturb like itches
or fresh stitches uniting skin
healing its tattered texture.It’s not a child of mine
