No Strings Attached


It doesn't matter if you say
"No stings attached"
There are always strings
They are invisible
That silent call that brings us together
In the first place
The signal that bacons us
To come into each others vision
The sticky web!
And we delude ourselves
Spray Teflon on it to slide by
You don't see the wispy tangle that just caught on the bottom of your
Shoe as you were leaving
The one that will call you back when you least expect
We are all entangled that way
Each of us
And blindly we go about our business
Sometimes never knowing the
Mark we leave behind
The DNA, the virus, the silent emotional hook
Yes, the string, its bondage holds us captive
Every time
The string you said you didn't have
Still pulls like gravity
Like the rising of the sun and moon
Or invisible circle of the planets
Following their cosmic thread
And you and I
No different from the
Bodies of heaven
Moving on our path
Which was always created
By strings
Entangled by the way we are.
Never think
In this life you are above it
For the fact we choose to meet
Attaches us
Like a shadow or the air we breathe
Strings us together forever
The minute we say hello
