oceanic yarn.

this yarn reminds me of the ocean but in the colors that are often secluded to special spots away from highly used waters.

acrylic ocean

dry and synthetic, acrylic
sings the taps of needles

and metal in rhythms like
haiku but stretched lengthy--

each stitch births from two
or three taps, and each one

of those taps, a squeezing out
syllable so sea-swished and woven

into yarn, only of a history
knitted as soon as hands hearken.
