The Song of the Subtle Knot

The Song of the Subtle Knot

I dreamt last night
of strands of silk
black and white
that were tied in a subtle knot
pressed into flesh
I tossed and turned
in the dream of the subtle knot
and woke with that
sense of loss
that arises not from sadness
but from that moment
when we are spent
and all that binds us
to the waking world
is the song of the subtle knot

-San Jose, CA
