acute phonetics
– for dorothy, sunil’s mom

a needle
a thread
a shunning of words
disposing of this wilderness
within   this wanting
for more.

her fingers to lips rip
skin scarlet
motion methodical
mind made up
sewn shut.

a woman of no words
tames the violence of longing
her silence   deliberate
as a massacre.
