Poem - Scissor’s Teeth

“Scissor’s Teeth” was written for a contest prompted off of a quote by Gabriel García Márquez. The quote spoke to the moment being the “last time” for all the actions desired with another. I decided to explore this topic through the three Moirai, also known as the Fates.

Scissor’s Teeth

This was the last time
on this side of the veil
wove by Cotho’s hand
our threads will be undone

together was the gift of time
measured by eternal rod
Lachesis has her say
to what’s allotted before the end

we knew that Moirai as her due
and hoped she would turn aside
two threads that wrapped as one
now undone in the slayer’s shade

the last Fate has cleaved a string
one or both, it matters not
what Atropos says is the end
at the tips of scissor’s teeth.
