  1. I love the conceit you’ve deployed in this poem. Sometimes we need to take drastic and abrupt action to get rid of the straggling things that are holding us back and, when we do, we find that those things never held the weight we thought they did.

    • Yes. All of that, and also, paying tribute to the idea that finally, you focus on the fact that you did something about it (hearing the snip of the scissors) rather than remembering what you did wrong and why did it take so long to fix it or let it go (the silence). I like this poem, I feel I said things just as I felt them, and in a clear way.
