Stitches By Peter Faziani

Stitches

Unforgettable moments
in broken fragments
like breaking irons
into rapiers
long forgotten dangers
of doing stupid things

Six years old

Winning wars

Touring Mars

And I can’t get back there

And I can’t reinvent it
but I can provide it
for you two.

My history leveled
broken bricks
shattered glass

I dreamt of offering you
the dreams I could only fantasize about
and when chimes ring and I’m taken back
to places I never wanted to leave
because I’d just have to go home

But your smiles tell me
that these things are not for naught.
