a thread to pull



a thread to pull
taunt against the shoulder
pinched between fingernails
please let go
a little voice whispers
turn around and let this happen
a pull
the knot tighter
roll on the finger tip
thread on thread
until the knot becomes loops
falling away
to a breath
before nothing

a thread to pull
squeeze the heart
to breaking

a thread to pull
life unravelled

a thread
