Kruschev/Kennedy/Rope: A Love Story

We cannot leave it up to you
alone.
We both know
what is
and what knot
rests at the center.
We each have grabbed a grimy end
tight with our two hands.
Of course, you know,
we cannot leave it
up to you
alone.
The tighter we pull,
the tighter the knot,
and you and i both know, of course,
what that
will mean…
So watch closely
as i drop
the rope
with one hand
release!
And with that now
free hand
instead
reach toward
you…
you do the same and we will…
we will
turn
this knotted line.
We will turn it,
this roped catastrophe,
into a circle;
spinning so fast
it will change…
We will change.
We will become
weather.
