trustworthy circles

this circle, 
cut from one end,
 lands on linen,
claudia's sleeve, in fact,
and looks to be at home. 
 she called them trustworthy,
these circles,
which makes me wonder.
 and now my stitching,
 cutting, and mending
during this flu
horrendous though it is
has something to be,
to lean into, to become.
