To A Friend Going Blind Analysis

Today, because I couldn't find the shortcut through,

I had to walk this town's entire inner

perimeter to find

where the medieval walls break open

in an eighteenth century

arch. The yellow valley flickered on and off

through cracks and the gaps

for guns. Bruna is teaching me

to cut a pattern.

Saturdays we buy the cloth.

She takes it in her hands

like a good idea, feeling

for texture, grain, the built-in

limits. It's only as an afterthought she asks

and do you think it's beautiful?

Her measuring tapes hang down, corn-blond and endless,

from her neck.

When I look at her

I think Rapunzel,

how one could climb that measuring,

that love. But I was saying,

I wandered all along the street that hugs the walls,

a needle floating

on its cloth. Once

I shut my eyes and felt my way

along the stone. Outside

is the cashcrop, sunflowers, as far as one can see. Listen,

the wind rattles in them,

a loose worship

seeking an object,

an interruption. Sara,

the walls are beautiful. They block the view.

And it feels rich to be

inside their grasp.

When Bruna finishes her dress

it is the shape of what has come

to rescue her. She puts it on.
