Embroidery Hoop

A kite disassembles
the hands and arms,

huts and lanes, trees
and this – nothingness,

and they all turn into
some geometrical shapes

I could have defined
albeit you know, I have failed

to define anything more than
a circle in which these

seem to be tambour-framed

sewn together by some
bygone lady with her needle of ray.
