How To Knit
by Amy Schmitz

Cast on the city of your birth
woven from whippoorwills and long
gravestones tucked into shadows.
No rows are even here.
The pattern is lake effect,
seasonal forbs, semblance.
Join in the round,
work across kit houses, American
Foursquares, cottages until
you have desired distance.
Turn and repeat or lay flat
to finish. Use the slipped stitches
to your advantage. Bind off loosely.
