Once, I made a knot garden
its manicured edging
Interlocking brick by brick
By deliberately laid brick
the careful beds
But still unable to contain
The frowsy messy herbs
Straining to untangle themselves
From my carefully designed patterns
And rejecting the idea
Of order

for the dverse quadrille prompt of 3/22/21: knot
