women's work

mending quilted pieces tattered
edges hammering metal

sweat in the lines of her neck
hair pulled back
eyes watering

pushing more pricks
her finger bends
at the waist

lover, mother, muscle she keeps
sewing, bending, biting

and she need not lie to herself
because pain is the easy, easy,

inspired by the easystreet prompts (now a link on my site)
