Spirit Bundle Doll
Pluck the twine off the streets
Here the twain shall bend and meet

Splinters salvaged from plyboard
Glue around a body gourd

Stamp new words onto scraps
Stamp feet wrapped in antique maps

Two blown fuses serve as eyes
Junk the reign of truancies

Hour feather, rainsweat, bristles
Pound a thick paste in a pestle

Clay hands pressed out of the earth
Mourn mothers died before the birth

Churn better garb from bitter grit
Bind it in conductive wire

Each limb right and left refit
Use as thread a spool of fire
