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


revealing a threadbare image

hanging by a thread

that unwoven life
