Poem of the Day: “Mending” by Adolf Wolff

Sorry about the slight delay in posting today, I had a pressing appointment with some ducks in a hotel lobby. (More on that tomorrow, but the Reader’s Digest version – Memphis = awesome.)

A bronze from Mr. Wolff

Night
a shop window
two women
mending
doing invisible mending
the light
close to their eyes
their eyes
close to their work
wearing out their eyes
mending
wearing out their life
mending
doing invisible mending.
