Poem of the week: “Advent” – Suzanne Underwood Rhodes

fire-1548003-640x480Through the needle’s eye
the rich man came
squeezing through stars of razor light
that pared his body
down to thread.
Gravity crushed his heart’s chime
and his breath that breathed
out worlds
now flattened as by fire
between walls.
The impossible slit stripped him,
admitting him
to stitch the human breach.
