"Ghost Writing" 18"w x 16"l, compost dyed cotton with appliqued vintage laces. Hand and machine embroidery, reverse applique, beading, faced holes  (pink for display background only)

 

 

a ghost had sat, wherever ghosts sit,
in the dark and fust and silence, and silently
embroidered old letters
words
looked like they had run in the rain ---------
and patched and beaded holes, burnt and torn and worn,
she he? pulled laces from old trousseaus and
unstrung beads
unravelled threads with no form left, a whisper of the silk,

a memory of shine still in the twilight

sussuration of bone needle and tiny mouseclick stitch
