Entanglement 2

Entanglement 2

Control bars link 
to each other,
and equalize
the marionettes 
and the masters.
The strings
pull in tension
on both ends
but buckle
when pressed
and cannot repel
until frames touch.
Each part of existence
-each particle in fabric
wood, bone, flesh and skin-
reacts
instantaneously
to their tangled lives
through theoretical fibers.

-Robert L. Jackson III

  1. Interesting that the control bars equalize the marionettes and the masters. That is very true, though one might not think it. I find your closing lines especially thought-provoking.

  2. As we stumble through life we're sometimes the marionette, and sometimes the master!

  3. Another stellar extended metaphor. You have a unique style that is quite wonderful.

  4. Yes these roles do interplay so well expressed in your lines
    "
    and equalize
    the marionettes
    and the masters"

    and continuing throughout with your theme.
    Nice write
