needles and pins and
pins and needles

scattered chaotic arrays
hands clutching and crushing
crushing and shushing
the fluttering life between
her two palms

button eye sewn mother
with ether chokes daughter
inside the killing glass jar
her prize specimen to fix
to a shadowbox wall
the collector needs
to own them all

needles and pins and
pins and needles
