Invisible Thread - Poem by Braden Coucher

There’s an invisible thread
Tied to a node in my neck,
Trailed all through my larynx,
Pouring up and out my throat
When I open my mouth
To say your name, my
Word Muffled in spools,
Vice bent harmonicas.

This thread unravels
Through beach pines, afloat the pacific,

To the East,

Wrapped around a dream
In Delaware and across the deep, deep
Atlantic, tangled around
A wall in Berlin and unrolling
All over a languid river bank, entwined
In a cherry tree that hosts a cornucopia
Of a sparrows nest.

The thread unfurls
Through daffodils

The idea of a couple

Grains of sand
On an beach in Italy
Where it would be
Woven, a

Braid in
A brown and yellow blanket.
