A tailor’s metaphor of shape and fit, seamlessness and warmth.

Close Around

There’s a tailoring to you,
a seamlessness of form
Long through the back,
a shape that fits my mind

The cloth of you, casually draped,
falls across my shoulders
Warming me
An understanding, crafted in the cut

Comfort, in sincerity of weave
Knowing, years and miles from now,
when the chill of age shivers me,
I’ll pull the fabric close around
