War, Hunger & Death

war, hunger and death
envelope the world so snug
like hand woven quilts

a map of the world
outlines borders, invasions
like a crochet plan

blood in a river
leading to more flows downstream
a warm knitted scarf

red tape, restrictions
layers upon more layers
like well roll’d string balls

yet through smut and gore
you can still find happiness
in a needle’s eye

– Scott Sandwich
