Undoing

A poem.

Undoing

If life were a line
played out like a cord
that we could recall,
rewind, unsnarl,

pull in, like fishermen,
the long, tangled
string of regrets,
free our line

Recommended: Could you pass a US citizenship test?

where it snagged another,
smooth, set straight,
and then reel in
a shinier catch,

what would we miss
in those loops and twists,
spontaneous jumbles,
kinks and crimps,

what briny amazements
would we unravel.

Pam Lewis
