as the body from the soul

I choose 
the strongest thread 
amongst the many spools
in my house
to mend 
my garments

I pull the loose end of the thread
on the spool of thread
in the sewing basket
slowly 
until the thread is taut 
and there is no slack

I pull and pull 
the thread
until as in  the end
the thread leaves the spool
and floats free in the air
as a body from a soul

I leave 
the empty spool
in the old sewing basket
while the strong thread 
mends 
my family’s torn garments
