By a Thread

oh the tenuous existence that we lead

and the tapestry that we weave



these many threads combining

into that visage

of our current existence



one loose thread

at some locus

snagging on a point in time

the fabric of that moment

begins to unravel



that fabric of time

unravelling

revealing a threadbare image



hanging by a thread

that unwoven life
