Woven threads

Threads

Jack Weisensel

Individuality is invisible indicative in the threads interweaving within threads interweaving within threads interweaving within you interweaving within me interwoven into us.

What is a human? 

Threads.

What does it mean to be human?

Threads interweaving within threads.

What is the cause of man's suffering?

Threads interweaving within threads interweaving within threads.

To what end are our threads interwoven?

Threads interwoven within threads interwoven within threads interwoven within birth interwoven within death interwoven within the evil which makes our threads interwoven.

Am I a man or a thread?

Men interweaving within men interweaving within men interweaving within men whose minds twist into threads interwoven. 

Tightly the threads twist interweaving within threads interweaving within threads interweaving within one spool.

Dreams interwoven within dreams interwoven within dreams.

Dreams of unweaving the tangled tyrannical ties interwoven within threads interwoven within threads interwoven within threads.

And thus the threads interwoven will hope to become broken at the whisper of their truth which for so long remained unspoken. 

Lies interwoven within lies interwoven within lies.

How do we live? 

Interwoven.

How do we die?

Interwoven.

What are we?

A tangle of threads interwoven within threads interwoven within threads interwoven within one spool.

Jack Weisensel is the author of the poem "Threads" which was rhythmically and stylistically inspired from an excerpt of Vladamir Nabokov's "Pale Fire.” Jack believes that all poetry is up to the interpretation of its reader and thus he reflected that principle into his work here by viewing all history, not just 2020, as an interwoven tangle of threads. The idea that anyone is completely separated from another is an illusion and yet it is also true that no one is completely the same. Mankind is and always will be a rope, and we will always be its threads.
