if i were to take a string
and wind it around what i feel for you,
cover it up –
i don’t know
how wide it would be,
how much i’ll need,
only that i need
to start.

it was this task,
given by you
to me
that has me puzzled.

because as i wind
with my unknown quantity of string,
contemplating with
which knot i will tie off the end,
every now and then,
i feel your hand
     brushing mine, and
every now and then
i feel as if you wish me to stop.

i’m going to keep
     spinning, whirling this away
until i know you don’t wish it hidden
until you take this string
     and wind it away.

to stop me, all you have to do is
