how knitting is denying that you have
skin like that which you eat : the fur of
others over pocked white flesh

a blindfold:   your husband in front of you
hunts the roots right from the ground
but can only grasp: cannot reft it

from the ground: nor can you with your
dimming eyes : all you really need it seems
hands with which to hold the quarry
