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
