How does it feel to be a single stitch in a sweater?
Or one penny tile on a bathroom floor?
Knit with the tension just right, laid down one at a time.
These purposeful actions are so precise
in the moment,
Individuals and their particular contributions,
needed but often unnoticed.
Honesty in materials,
appreciation of history,
