rivets 

there’s a charcoal gray cardigan laid across the floor.
it holds the shape of a person so succinctly..
I have become obsessed with the idea of the human being who made it.
such close, fumbled, frayed stitching.
there’s a fresh burn hole in the left pocket.
the burn is so wide,
they must’ve barely known they were on fire.

the label reads:

like rivets, 
with time 
undone.

  1. Rivets are not designed for forces in tension, and can be pulled apart. Screw and nut gives joint strength In tension… but rivets are perfect in shear. Godly beautiful
