Striped

Striped  by Nancy Schatz Alton

I am a knit hat:

striped

hat that I lost:

burnt in my memory’s strongbox

pattern of random colors: no pattern

red draws colors together

red joins brown, white blue, every line stronger

for the red through line

knit by Jen:

I am pieced

together

seamed and broadened

by stories

striped: held

within the hat

I no longer own

red & striped & rich & lined:

I am a knit hat: striped.
