Needle and Thread

A needle and thread to repair a seam which has no tear
But failed upon inspection
Earning the indignity of disqualification

Repair undertaken but not completed
Time an unforgiving constraint

Anger’s distraction conceals the wounds
Of an injured ego,

Not healed until the required repair is completed
The offending article passing inspection
And the hot pleasure of competition is indulged.
