Falling apart

A bundle of sticks
bound together so tightly –
impenetrable.
A sudden flash! a knife-blade;
yarrow stalks clatter.
I Ching … a book of changes …
game of Pick-up-sticks.

One thought on “Falling apart

  1. Yes I see this, too. What would happen, for instance, I’ve sometimes thought, if people no longer drove in the marked lanes on the interstate? It would all fall apart. This fine twine that holds life together is very important.
