FOLD by Dorotha Grace Lemeh

FOLD

Isolating evidence

formed by

placement/displacement

Stiffened by

moisture and heat

Continuous steam emits the force that forms crevices

Fold shape

Fold limbs

Fold history

Fold memory

Hold fast to a truth

Neither yours nor theirs

Hold down the iron to(o)…

varying forms of

dangling material that (re)act to surfaces

— curving,                 stretching,               spreading —

u               n               d                u                l                a                t                 i                n                g

underneath the light touch of

the constant press

of surface memories that

BLISTER.

Molding, subduing, unfurling

by pressure

p              r                 e                s                s                u               r                 i                n                g

the shape that creases

Fold shape

Fold limbs

Fold history

Fold memory

(Un)bending not breaking

merciful supplication.
