Unravelling and weaving, sometimes simultaneously


I remember the day

it was summer

and we were laughing

sorting clothes

twisting and bending
in the confinement
of the laundry room

You had that glint
in your eyes
that made them
a bolder blue

and your hands
were more full of me
than the wash

You picked at
the slender straps
on my shoulders

and asked nonchalantly
how much I really
liked the dress

I could tell
your intention
in the inquiry

but found I really
wasn’t all that attached
to that particular dress

after all


Fast forward today

beneath your tee shirts
folded neatly in the closet
I saw a flowered print

and tugging it
from under the pile
it fell open in my hands

just as I was in yours

ripped straight up the center

just as I am now
