Puppetry

They tightened the slack

I split up the track

And hold steadfast the ends

Spinning above, mid-air like some

Antisocial acrobat

I learned the words and

Carved the face

To only know smile–

While the rest seem to float

Without rope

Figures looming, roaming

Free to fall–and

I wish silently

To fly

Too
