NAPOWRIMO April 7, 2018

Birth Day

What threads join the Crucifixion to the Internet,

tie themselves to William Wordsworth,

Marjory Stoneman Douglas and John Tully,

winding around the Battle of Shiloh

the age of television,

and the untying of Prohibition?

Too much unbound violence

woven throughout history,
yet stars glow brightly

in one day’s tapestry 
knitted forever to me.
