Ode to a Piece of String

Such joy and torment can be
found in a piece of
string

Hours of sheer bliss
pawing at the air
moments of sickening torment
as you pull softly
digit over digit

Such power in a piece of string!

We can string things together
or string them along
Something to never forget
Or never remember
Binding for maintenance
pain or pleasure

Strung out or strung up?

tickling agitation
teasing temptation
unravel, unwind, wrap, curl, stitch, mend

such joyful torment
such tormenting joy
in a piece of string.
