Fairies
we meet at the intersection of Dream Wish and What-Is-Possible Streets you are wearing glasses and your eyes are rimmed with fear I have in my arms a covered cage with two green and gold fairies flitting inside like parakeets beneath the dark cloth I do not show them to you we sit down and order: from every section of the menu and we will share the last part dessert during dessert we take a pill and the restaurant disappears I push back the table climb onto your lap straddle you like a whore I pull your lips up into my mouth lick your eyes your terrible eyes with their overflow of fear I unbutton your chest open your heart to my hands gently I lift you out of your mind like a jewel and I tell you I have fairies and you say you have fairies and we look in at them and they hold the bars in their tiny fists and look back at us and their tears are diamond chips and we see they cannot save us but isn't it good to have fairies? you said we would never go down God St. where the white-bearded old man in the corner house yells at the kids who step on his perfect lawn I never wanted to go I held your hand I let you go now and we are drifting up death is not so bad all of it is all of it but I want there to be fairies.

ANDRENA ZAWINSKI
The Narrative Thread; or, Practice of Kanthas
(Villanelle after the exhibition of quilts, The Narrative Thread: Contemporary Womenıs Embroidery in in Rural India at The National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D. C.)
- for Phoolan Devi, 1963-2085 -
They stitch as if we need these blankets to crawl under, these thoughts that toss sweet dreams into fretful nights. They stitch patches of stories onto a tongue of cloth. They stitch - girls left to sicken, to die, books torn from them-- stitch in womenıs fisted faces on a stammer of speech. They stitch as if we need these blankets to crawl under. They take to needle and thread in a revolution of stitch, stitch speaking in streets without asking for permission. They stitch patches of stories onto a tongue of cloth. They stitch in women veiled at home, poisoned widows, stitch mango groves to chemical spills, wheatfields to AIDS. They stitch as if we need these blankets to crawl under. They stitch--girls burned by inlaws at husbandsı pyres - stitch palms ripe with fruit to gang rapes in hands of authority. They stitch patches of stories onto a tongue of cloth. They stitch quilts for shoppers to slip under with their dreams, for dreams between borders stitched in a revolution of fingers. They stitch as if we need these blankets to crawl under. They stitch patches of stories onto a tongue of cloth.
