Erasures

I want to unravel you
to take from the loom
the thread of your making 
return it to the sheep
un-sheared
to the flax
un-sown
to the cotton boll
with un-bloodied fingers
to reduce your sum
into a minutia
of a very common denominator
to parse your syllables
and disaggregate your data
until you become my measure
(February 2013)
