The sweater that was meant to keep me warm
is tattered, no longer functional, I shiver
Thoughts like missiles, hurl you away from me
I am causal and blind to it
Preferring my perfect incriminations,
Who doesn’t love being “right”
Useless pile of yarn, useless sacrifice
Maybe I can take up knitting
a woven pattern of darks and lights
unraveling what has been excluded.
Will you remind me if I forget?
