sandra's gift

as i prepare for oz
i'm working
weaving and spinning and drawing.
 i finished up
 a soft book
 rooted in a gift of cloth
shop cloth
mechanic's clean-up cloth.
(i am the final,
fifth daughter
of a seamstress and a mechanic.)
 and kami-ito spun from lokta
 sandra brownlee's gift
 became a small book
full of many stitches.
and touch.
