This piece is was inspired by a poem by Suzanne Rhodes called Advent and was also part of the Asheville Art Museum Chritmas Invitational.
It is in the collection of Steve and Julliana West of Raleigh
Through the needle's eye
the rich man came
squeezing through stars of razor light
that pared his body down to thread.
Gravity crushed his heart's chime
and his breath that breathed out worlds
now flattened as fire between walls,
the impossible slit stripped him
to stitch the human breach.
