Threading the Needle

.

What’s that saying about a something passing through the eye of a needle

I can’t quite recall it

although it is on the tip of my tongue

which has just wet the thread

that I want to pass through the eye of a needle

to do some sewing

some mending

does that actually help

or

is it an illusory notion that a wet thread

will be easier to pass through

the eye of a needle

than a dry one

I know nothing anymore

I say that now knowing that I have never known anything

and most likely never will

but I keep hoping that

this thread will pass through the eye of this needle

and some sewing, some mending, will get done

but my eyes aren’t as agile as I used to think they were

if I can manage this delicate operation

then the silence of satisfaction will envelop me

and I may do nothing after that

“The process of elimination, combined with a modicum of common sense, will always assist us to arrive at the correct conclusion with the maximum of possible accuracy and the minimum of hard labor. Which being translated means: I guessed it.”
― Margery Allingham
