Man or machine;

stable steel

or fragile filigree,

spinning through space,

through this space,

life the length of a thread;

never knowing

how deeply the spool is wound,

Man or machine;

we motor and move,

we spin tales

and cross lanes

looking for the link,

the correct cog to coil around,

to lighten the toil

we are threading through.

Man or machine;

one turns

and the other is turned.
