5 thoughts on “Strings Attached

  1. The central conceit in this poem is perfect for that feeling ones gets from reflecting on mounting grumbles and grudges. The way you’ve depicted it, it is almost like a rosary of aggravation.

    • I like the rosary image you mention. Sometimes I think people do count off grievances in that way, too bad so often it is in the context of a conversation and the listener is caught in the string. And I also think there are lots of people who just like reflect on what is wrong, it’s pleasant for them.
