Threadbare

We look at the heart issue threadbare.
In the end we tie a knot and bite it off.

We saw this happening when mother
Was mending an old sweater for new.

You cannot put plastic rings in a tube
And hope for a liquid to beat its walls

As if it is old river heading to the sea.
In the end we try to knot and bite off.
