Patched by Susan Tepper

Body’s stitched over
irregular
quick sloppy 
patched red & black
Squint to find needle marks
barely holding 
Any slight move 
breaks it
off the frame:
who I am, who has been
discovered, covered up 
this whole long year


Susan Tepper is a twenty year writer in all genres, and the author of nine published books.  Her most recent are CONFESS (a poetry chapbook by Cervena Barva Press, 2020) and a quirky road novel WHAT DRIVES MEN (Wilderness House Press, 2019).  Currently Tepper is in pre-production of an Off-Bdwy play titled THE CROOKED HEART which she based on artist Jackson Pollock’s later years.
