First my thanks for a rewarding workshop to Suzannah Evans, at Leeds City Museum, the Victorian stuffed animals there providing poetry ideas.  So I have reworked one of my ideas from that workshop.  It requires further work, as do all the NaPoWriMo inspired poems on here this month.
This time the prompt also came from The Poetry School - to use the time between sunset and sunrise, the dark, as a setting.

Moon-glaring leaded window.
My new old breath bursts neat stitches,
unpicker slicing through mistakes,
stuffing bouquets fall to the floor.
I could be a hearth rug ...
