Unwound

x

After conflict

There’s thinking

It should have never

Happened

Cooler, take indifferent

Heads should have prevailed

At the start

Before

Before the mess

The knotted

And unraveling,

Twisted the way that

Things twine now

x

Not in the midst of

What’s going on

There’s getting by

Day to day

Hoping to wake somehow

Into something new

Something

Miraculous, so filled

With grace

That penitence

Weeps for relief

x

Somehow with

An uncertain thread

From Ariadne

Now betrayed,

The maze

Should be resolved

And we

Regain

The air outside
