occassionally I find myself
thinking about loss
it’s a strange feeling, prempting & preparing for moments that are inevitable
i almost imagine the numbness
it’s like hardening molten metal in a furnace
moments on the verge of collapse
life is so short
but would it be different if it was longer?
if we were shown a piece of string
would we see ourselves unfold
into a straight line, with a beginning and an end?
or are we really a knot
never to be untied
always blissfully unaware
of how we started
and where the end might be
