a heart of thread
beats in my chest
carefully wound

most of the time
I keep careful watch
holding it close

from time to time
I open up a bit
to allow an adornment

sometimes mistakes happen
my heart unravels a bit
carefully to be re-wound

sometimes I am confused
by ugly adornments
carefully to be removed

I often forget two threads
that take effort to see
one coming and one going

but they are very important
because through them I'm entwined
with other thread hearts

all of them, in fact
what happens to my thread heart
ripples across them

what happens to their
thread hearts, reverberates
I feel the tremor

it reminds me
the place I hold in this world...
it matters.
