Losing Threads

the tie that bindscut-the-rope
is losing threads
they’ll all be gone
before we’re dead
and we’ll be miles apart

the cord is now
a simple string
without the strength
for one-more-thing
and we’re all standing guard

what do we need,
what will it take
to sheathe our swords
for the family’s sake?
we need a meeting
of the minds
to re-construct
the tie that binds
