Knot together

you say you have rethought 

the harm to “the children”

In the unknotting of us

These children?

So vivid

mixed-beautiful faces

Ours together

raise all the quotidian questions

Of how

How do you unmake a bed?

Unknot a tie?

Untie a knot

How do you 

Unbreak a vow

Unmend a wound

Unfeel a blow

To the face

That is my answer–

our conjoined knots and ties

In their eyelashes and knitted souls

Inseparable into parts of “mine” and “yours”

So close

 your eyes, my love 

And remember

All our sprawled splendor
