POETRY: Advent by Suzanne Underwood Rhodes

Advent by Suzanne Underwood Rhodes

Through the needle’s eye
the rich man came
squeezing through stars
of razor light
that pared his body down to thread.
Gravity crushed his heart’s chime
and his breath that breathed out worlds
now flattened as fire between walls.
The impossible slit stripped him,
admitting him
to stitch the human breach.
