Wintergreen

Wintergreen, mint-green, light-green

a hatchling drawn & cut

from textured fabric

the rhythm of its making

sounds like the dark rain

needle & motor hammering

dark rain meeting rooftop

while her seam stitches

wintergreen, mint-green, light-green

darts in a circle

loose around her waist

a party of a dress

perfect for California

worn in Seattle

within heated house

rain punctuating & illuminating

wintergreen, mint-green, light-green

a shout of ease

as winter unfurls her storms

is the emerald green grass darted, too?
