Daily missive for Monday the 26th of November.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Monday the 26th of November.

We sang a song of heartbreak
Played the violin
The music was displayed
On a stand by the window
The piano lid is closed
Or carried off
Unto the landfill
Catgut strings remain
Unpicked
Embroidered handkerchiefs
Survive
Tightly folded
In the bottom of a drawer
Too many threads
Rarely golden
Frayed from disenchantment
A few pearls
From a dropped stitch
A pattern
Rarely followed
A tightly woven weft
Every single strand
Wrapped in close
Entanglement
Their proximity
Lost to one another
Broken needles
Stuck in a groove
Of dancing reels
Once darned, holes
Take on the appearance
Of patchwork quilts
Let them be
Unbind them
It is the modern way
To cut ties
With the past
Reinvention is the art
Of illusion
There are no truths
Just old ideas
In new clothes
Spin the winding wheel
Pull the wool
From your eyes
Snip at the
Rural meanings
Of Arcadia
And the loose ends of
Gordian knots
They are all Greek to me
