Crazy Quilt

I love crazy quilts, and I love “Crazy Quilt” by Tess Taylor:

….Tonight she sliced our mother’s raw silk saris.

Dark ribbons bloomed and I admired
her fierce concentration to resettle

all her scraps at staggered angles,
the way her body stores her making,

how she destroys each thing she’s salvaged
to harvest it as her exploding star.
