white fingernails have uneven edges.
The farthest ends of a body are fibers

much like dandelion stems.
when pulled and leak phloem
when twisted; the dandelion is hearty.
You can eat the leaves and also

folding close to a death made of
fuzzy white and closing petals
sealing off the senses:
sustain this darkest time
where in tightly wrapped reflections
mazes of dark mirrors and pounding veins
the yellow life is shifted until perfection.
of the lines are tied; unfurl
and lift off: float free, seed.
White hangnail, drag your brush
across the sky, follow your crown.
deep, deep in moist soil or
be plucked by warm fingers and wished
away. To patchwork pages
and fingernails again.
