Complicated Knots

Preoccupied with the unraveling of complicated knots,

He failed to notice that his bearded brown-paper sculptures

Were endangered by unexpected visitors clamoring for pound cake,

Causing stacks of cups and saucers to sway precariously

On the overturned wheelbarrow, underneath the lights.

Composure disappearing, he howled, dismayed.

They squinted and blinked in astonishment,

Mopping the ground with their hats to hide their embarrassment.
