It's just poetry, it won't bite

Rae Spencer’s most recent poem to appear here was “Duality” (November 2016)

By Rae Spencer

Yarn and ink and memory
Looped into patterns
Illusions of order

I tie loose ends
Trying to finish
Scarves and poems

Before they unravel
Into abstract skeins
Tangled, like yesterday

Where the past I remember is not
What anyone else remembers
We were all there together

But we were always flying apart

    Rae Spencer, this poem is much more than threads and poems. Thanks for going in the direction of tying up loose ends at full speed ahead.

  2. Sharon Poch says:

    “We were all there together

    But we were always flying apart.”

    Tight summation, tying up the abstract into an elusive whole.

    Thank you,

    Yes, this is life. How true.
