Begone Strings

"Watching a Cloud, 18 focuses," by Barbora Bobovcakova

Begone Strings

We want the light from the lamp
and the lamp but not its cord
Begone machinery Begone strings
tethering the moving pieces
We tolerate gravity so well only
because of its invisibility If all things
could retreat into their functions
how pure we could feel Clear water
Tubes tucked into the walls Nothing
metal jammed in the garbage disposals
of our throats
