Thread unravelling

 

I noticed a thread unravelling on my old, wool sweater

It seemed harmless at the time

That one thread unravelling.

It caught on a nail on the garden shed,

And I watched most of my right sleeve unravel

I couldn’t fix it.

It seemed harmless at the time—

That one thread unravelling

Later on, it turned out not to be so.
