Woven by a spiral of stars
Carbon based creatures
We are

Somewhere within the depth of cells
Dark creation dust
Will tell

This story from the edge of time
Inhales us backwards

Fabric unravelled down a twist
Single pure threaded
Rare wisp

One floating golden stitch unsewn
Drifting boundless voids


FABRIC by Debbie Freeman


Ten Seconds

Ten seconds sooner… I smile at the back of your car
That whoosh and the roar as you tore up the road
A bid to win as you slid in the gap with inches to spare
Arriving ten seconds sooner ~ and I am there.

Ten seconds later in a pile of dust and rusty parts
Blue lights announcing the phone in your hand
I slide past remembering when a wise voice said
“Better to be late in this world than early in the next.”

Dedicated to the wise words of our Dad, the best driver ever.
