fabric making

Shades of green
Drift from her
In undersea waves
A handmade dress
Patchworked jealousy
From late night
Glassy eyes
Woven for him and
Frayed at her ankles
She collects
Threads of regret
With numb, calloused fingers
Rebraiding all the nonsense
Into wings

Like the creation feel of this - the weave that binds it all, from the "patchwork jealousy" and "handmade dress" to "threads of regret" and "rebraiding all the nonsense". Good image, concise and effective--evokes strong sentiments of sadness for the woman, forced to face the long nights of uncertainty.

Fashioning threads of regret into wings.... given the context, a beautiful thought that works on many levels.

Maybe you will want to add a twitter button to your website. I just marked down this site, but I must complete it manually. Just my suggestion.
