the unknotting problem

 

you try to smoothly unknot yourself

 

– I catch you with a smile brightening up your face

softly biting your lower lip as you watch me –

 

but you don’t know

that we have always been two free ends

of a one-dimensional line segment

stretching out through time and space

until we met and started wrapping around ourselves arbitrarily

 

– and the space between us becomes fluid

as we pass each other by

as we sit drinking a coffee together –

 

and you try to stretch away from this physically inviolable bound

but keep bouncing back unknowingly

 

– and we face each other smilingly

words locked down in the deep

and we’d say each other anything

to avoid having said the unsayable –

 

towards the inevitable destiny of a knot

fusing its two free ends together

becoming an unknot
