"What does it mean to weave?"one may ask
Daily work of the ancients?
Women's work?
A skill of trade?
A kind of craft?
Poetry daft?
Calculate, think, scribble, count, tie
Up, down, and back around
Count, tie
Undo neatly
Tie more, loop more
Crank, wind, and comb
Tight, striaght, and evenly spaced
Thread those heddles
Tie the treadle
Sley the reed
Excuse me?
Fabrication is not a simple task
"What does it mean to weave?," one asks
