bound by the same thread

Photo by Suzy Hazelwood on

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

Tie a knot
to ensure we know where to stop
push and pull through the fabric
and tug at its ends

In & out, and around again
stitch after stitch
just enough to tie us 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 single piece of thread
