The modern strings of life

The modern strings of life part 1

At present

imagine the man who spins his web
then imagine 7 billion weaving

Pick one man

look at the lines that hold him in place
sticky strings shoot out from his desire

not knowing

lines of luxury and dissociation
there are lines of friendship tested by the lines
of crisis
and unfamiliar lines that bind him nonetheless


strings pull his hands and feet
until those parts bleed


strings pull on so hard that we find him dead
decapitated by his own desires


woven strings
that fail him time and time and time again.
