bound by the same thread

Pick up a needle,
a red piece of thread,
eye the eye of the needle
slowly push it through

Tie a knot at one end
to make sure it knows where to stop
push the needle through the fabric
pull and tug at its end

In & out, and around again
stitch after stitch
just enough to tie the fabric together
just enough so nothing else gets through

Our fabric
threaded together,
two pieces of misshapen chaos,
meet at the seams

Perfectly aligned,
forever bound
by a red piece of thread
