BRIEF: Pick a word, the more obscure the better, and then write a six line verse that includes it.

/fil-uh-cher/ -choor/
noun: French Medieval

the act of forming into threads


not best for binding, perhaps too plain for show
does it matter presently which way to weave
as long as filature surrounds, combines belief:
tell this story properly, reject embroidery of fact
and when they all stand back, unpicking a view
it becomes apparent what truth reaps, it sews.
