For Bill Withers & All by Stefanie Bennett

Indeed, he fiddled a tune
About Grandma’s Hands
That came straight off
The fringe
Of Cosenza blue  *
– And quicker
Than a lamb
To pasture… to flit
By Grandpa’s virtual
Spooning – and
The flame-tree moon’s
Ever sallying.

Revolution! It’s
In the Making.

[Cosenza = Calabrian place name]
