i craft a patch

shoveling mulch with a woman
who tells me what she writes
and i shovel and shovel and shovel
as she holds the bags telling me
about her case against birth control
cloaking her christian right anti-abortiaon argument
with terms like feminism and empowerment
_______
how i craft a patch
out of an old striped shirt
for an eye whose retina has decided
to detach

    i just really like the image of you shoveling and shoveling, while that woman was shoveling sh*t with her words…
