Catch Some Wide Eye

Woman of Strength


when i see the many lines on your hands
thick-skinned, you told me, just grin
i remember the steady hammers, nails
wavering step-stool, little tots holding tight
you trusting us with your life
as you, dusted hair and beaded brow,
muscled your way through a man’s world
into the future.
