The Strong Thread

Perhaps you know about the strong thread the one that William Stafford
writes about that holds all your old dreams & your beforelife & your afterlife
the one that feels like breath or the beating cloud of a heart that if you let it go
you might die or fall into a life you don’t want like the one where you were drawn
by nicotine to rummage through ashtrays when no one was looking in search of
a partially smoked cigarette but of course someone was looking. You. You knew.
When you hold onto the strong thread, you unbury yourself.

by Sarah Snyder from Now These Three Remain (Lily Poetry Review Books, 2023)
