Sweet Little Nothings

Learn something new with an old friend

Mary & Clary
a widow & a divorcee—
both being rid of their balls,
having cut the chains with
arsenic & ink,
no longer had a man to keep them warm,
so they decided to keep company
with needle & yarn.

And it was when they took a class at
The Knittin’ Needlers that
they realized they’d become their mothers,
who’d made their fathers miserable,
which explained their only childhoods.
