Our Lady Undoer of Knots – a poem by Grace C. Przywara

Our Lady Undoer of Knots

While reflecting on how
knots of ribbon or string
always seem to be so
convoluted, beyond
amend, I remember
one small tug can shift the
entire contortion now.
inch by inch, connections
reveal themselves: to pull
this pulls that then, gaps where
before threads strangled tight.
Serpentine blooms rosettes.
The knot unravelling
spills smoothly down her hand:
disjointed disarray
has always been one strand.
