My words to you

Jean Valentine
A poster featuring art by Cara Lynch depicts a kaleidoscopic abstraction in hues of pink and purple. To the right of this is a poem titled My words to you, written by Jean Valentine.

My words to you

My words to you are the stitches in a scarf
I don’t want to finish
maybe it will come to be a blanket
to hold you here

love not gone anywhere
