Tension

5 days without manipulating this hair    
Only to use a luxury shampoo    
For breaking up the uniformity    
That made these strands    
Just as pliable, silkening  
Enough to take over…    
    
The unsociable parts    
Of her sewing machine    
As hands adjusted the tension    
Soon to release  
From the modest bundle    
Of brooding thread    
I could feel her    
Adjusting    
The angle of the feed  
Until she put me  
In reverse on the spool.
