she draws:


i stitch:


What we make,
why it is made,
how we draw a dog,
who it is we are drawn to,
why we cannot forget.
Everything is a collage,
even genetics.
There is the hidden presence
of others in us,
even those we have known briefly.
We contain them
for the rest of our lives,
at every border we cross.
