Hellebore on a Summer Day

FREE WRITING

A subtlety, when noticed, is never too hard to
un-notice. Nothing like a dense summer,
collective sweat sheen, that brief vapour
all condensed into the scene.
Then, the soft prick;
frayed fabric hook with its sharp licks so
sporadic, so consistent.
A fleeting litany.

Many subtleties, when noticed, are never too hard to
un-notice. See, the thread caught on my sleeve,
