The Whole Cloth

This perfect bound book of poems by Gina White has a cloth bound cover with gold foil stamp, and a long lasting smythe sewn interior.

All in her white
she comes,
a yearly visitation
that takes us
by storm after storm
for that is the way
with her wild mothering;
to search out her creatures
countless as stars
she cannot keep track of,
missing and list
in Siberias
she never intended.
To gather us, faithless,
under a perfect thicket
of her snow
only to sleep for days
in drifts on the roof,
old as sorrowing,
to drain through our dreams
to seep through all the invisible holes…
