Blackcoat

The needle knits the shorn ram whole
From the spinners wheel, the whir of reuniting

Is a man really made by his clothes?
What kind of mother would permit this?

Over the cliff pasture clouds knit themselves together
Berry-black and ripe with hail

When men face one another, stone-faced and winter-lean
The women prepare their ointments
