Teach us the art of filaments...

The Letter

There is a way of saying things,
Connecting loneliness with loneliness.

We trap ourselves
In simple flats or trips overseas
Or a spider's web of domestic peace,
Nourishing the heart of being alone.

Spider, good creature, spinner of morals,
Teach us the art of filaments:
How brother calls brother, and each knot conducts
Astonishing beauty.

And you,dearest,
For your letter, thanks:
filament beautiful,
Healing my loneliness.
