Artwork Spotlight: Knot

In the Artwork Spotlight series of blog posts, the Layered Onion highlights a specific work by an artist in the community. These works could range from short stories to visual art to music and more!

Today, Emma is sharing her poem “Knot.”


What is a knot
But a spot that stands
Out. Apart.
It can be in your back,
On your neck, in your stomach
It can govern you,
Own you, Envelop you
Until you are a swirl of feeling,
A canvas stretched thin,
Laying on the ground.
