friday morning poem

This line feels like a quicksilver rivulet flowing across black velvet
but I kneaded it desperately in my head until it became this one
And then transmuted itself from gold to lead before your eyes
Unrecognizing itself into new form without unbecoming its truth
Contained within these constraints the lines free themselves
Finding their own lives apart from each other
So they can come together in harmony
