Fascinating

You’re looking at the weft

but what if you could see

the warp threads

being pulled

behind

the scenes?

I tell one man I still love

a knight in shining armour

and you can’t see

who

immediately thereafter

and seaming

disconnected

arrives.

But the mirror

has cracked

and the web has

floated

wide

.

.

.

and I am late making lunches

and all that

other

jive

so no pretty poetry

nor images.

Only

replies

have I imbibed.

and once,

long ago,

a novel about

a young girl

reciting

this

poem.

.

.

.

and even still

I love

the Knight

and even

dreamed of him

last night

though he never

looks

the same.

.

.
