FABRIC, THE BACK OF….
In a garden - I stopped to touch
the white fabric of a rose - only to
see directly below - sitting there
at the roots of that rose bush -
the rough hard back of a turtle….
Wow the difference between the
top of a turtle and the fabric of
a rose - between the back of the
neck of a laughing kid on a swing
and the back skin of that old guy I just
saw in the nursing home heading back
to his room in his open backed johnny.
