Gift-wrapped

From the dovecote the song

drifts down.

I pause my binding,

cocking my head to listen:

something about it is familiar, but not,

like the aftertaste of a bitter fruit

you only half-remember eating.

I carry on, threading

the thin, gold cords

together.

This soul’s organs

can’t escape.
