Silk threads

silk threads
are uninspiring;
find me some jute,
some coarse hands,
nothing cute –
let me create
marvels in browns and greys;

silk threads
are too pretty,
too delicate
for me to play with,
find me some coir,
some raw strength –
let me make you beds and mats;

silk threads
are brittle, expensive,
find me some cotton,
some patient minds –
let me make you things to wear,
summer, winter or rain;

silk threads
are not for me.
find yourself a man
who will care.
