old-books_pixabaySnap the distance as though

it were an old book,

and we disagreed

with the way its dust

corrupted the air.


We are woven people

and its rancid words pull us

like a novice launderer,

stretch us unfillable

and walk away –


as though a tabbinet embroidered

by two different hands

were not still

a tapestry.
