Unicorn of the Sea

Unicorn of the Sea

For David …Truancy Detective, Narwhal aficionado, and love of my life

I stitch to make a song of you
when words are tired
and my mind is a campfire.

I listen for the tale of you
with handmade motives
and sprigs of color.

I write to make the most of you
with inked ambitions
in the morning’s day.

To love you
is to make art of you.

There is no other way.
