Tie a word to a phrase

knot the phrase to a string

Already it begins, the unravelling

Emotions free to float

blow away in the wind

People who don’t write

I’m not sure how they breathe

With all of the darkness, they can never set free

Muffled and buried they throw back a drink

Eat a cheeseburger

Check their online shopping carts, load another item in

Watch the horses go around

I’m over here, unravelling string

How long?

The eternal conundrum

Mindless koan

Who cares?

For as long as life continues

So will my hands



Turning insides out

Letting go of everything

Is what it’s all about
