Beautiful metaphor of structure dismantled and dissolved. And she is wonderful.


Julie, your poem elicited an audible "ooooh" when I finished reading it the first time.

Loved this, the visual and the emotion:

"words were her down filled quilt

until those September

moments when

the dust swept her



Thank you. xoA
