Only a woman’s eyes can tell.


“They see the whole but they don’t see the stitches.
They don’t see the speech of the creator in the work
of the needle. We mend. We women turn things inside out
and set things right. We salvage what we can
of human garments and piece the rest into blankets.
Sometimes our stitches stutter and slow.
Only a woman’s eyes can tell. Other times,
the tension in the stitches might be too tight because of tears,
but only we know what emotion went into the making.
Only women can hear the prayer.”
