dVerse Quadrille #135

The Worst Parts

The man she loves is dead,
and left her a thorny heart.
It’s torture. And so she knits.

It numbs. It’s transcendental.
Self-medicating. Melancholy
stitching a repeating groove.

Her rhythm never  judges –
the needles know she
doesn’t want to move on.

  1. I’m not a knitter (wish I were) but it seems that knitting could be one of those activities where you can kind of go on auto pilot and indeed “numb out.” A sad place to be told so well, Misky.
