The Fates in Greek mythology worthy of fame are three sisters;
deities who spin, determines the length of our thread, and snips it—
images we have most likely thought about, heard their whispers
saw ourselves dangling dangerously high over a deep pit.

Deities who spin, determines the length of our thread, and snips it—
defined in other cultures as weavers of destiny on tapestry loom:
saw ourselves dangling dangerously high over a deep pit;
also there’s Macbeth’s Three Witches so popular in classroom.

Defined in other cultures as weavers of destiny on tapestry loom,
images we have most likely thought about, heard their whispers—
also there’s Macbeth’s Three Witches so popular in classroom.
The Fates in Greek mythology worthy of fame are three sisters.
