A Single Strand of Golden Yellow

(In Imitation of Kay Ryan's "A Hundred Bolts of Satin")

All you
have to snag
is one
loop
and the life
unravels
all the way back.
It seems
to have been
a sweater.
There seems
to have been
a pattern.
The yarn
that you
end up with
cannot reveal
it: a skein of
maroon wool,
for example,
several yards
of blue,
a single strand
of golden yellow –
perhaps you
were less
bright than
you imagined.
