Hemp Bound Journal:  Three Things (reworked)Three Things
by Shelly Couvrette
December 6, 2005

Three things
Are not four things.
Three things
Are sharper than knives,
Silent famines of thought that
Shine silver like moons in the dark.

Three things are perfectly cold
By intent
By design
By the deadliest scheme.

Three things are ancient wheels
That turn in the night,
Near misses and reflections.

Three things
Are stitching thought to flesh to deed,
Bone drawing blood slickened sinew.

Three things are problematic monsters
Ministering, waiting, and watching.
