The Knot



You must not cut the knot.
You must not.
O, the clever knitters, splicers,
twisters, turners, snarlers,
who tie everything
to everything else!
You must study, must practice,
must learn how to reverse
their entanglements,
malicious and careless.
You'll get confused, confounded.
You will fail.  Okay!
But you must not,
you must not cut the knot!
