 S t r i n g s    t a u t
       the doll twists

        just
        a single movement
        of the puppeteer’s wrist

 

        D a n c e
                      puppet
                                  D a n c e . .  !

      

            nimble hands
            orchestrate  mischief

                     sleight of hands
              mask the outcome's
              aftermath

 

l i s t e n

            to the music

                                   on
            the puppeteer’s
            strings


  p l a y    t h a t    f u n k y    m u s i c    !

 

        D a n c e
                      puppet
                                  D a n c e . .  !

  

            tic toc
            tic toc

            the metronome plays

      

                              s i l e n t   .  .

                             is the rhythm
                     of the pendulum’s
                     swing

             i t    d r a w s   y o u   i n

 

       D a n c e
                      puppet
                                  D a n c e  , , !

 

                      frantic fingers
                                    agitate
                      and
                      twist their charge

 

         tautology
        consumed
in misdirection

 

                       s t e e p e d

                      furtive
                      connivance

 

       D a n c e
                      puppet
                                  D a n c e  , , !

 

         w i t h   g r e a t   s k i l l

        the puppeteer
        pulls the strings                            

 

m o v e m e n t s   n o t    o f    n o w

                q u a n t u m   d u a l i t y

 

                   in a superfluid
                        metaphasic
                   entanglement

 

s u b s t a n c e    c o n t r i v e d

                          w  a  n  g  l  e  d

 

                                        coaxed
                                     moulded

    o f    b l i n d    o b l i v i o n

 

a simulated                                                                                                                                                                           holographic projection

        and only I can see
        the strings
                                                                                          
  

      D a n c e
                      puppet
                                  D a n c e  , , !

   

    guile tattoos
    the puppeteer’s hands

        aphoristic deception
        begild dodgy intent
        

s h a d o w    c h o r e o g r a p h y


the puppeteer
sets the tone

                         
                           never knowing


                     t h e   p u p p e t e e r


                                     is


                       t h e    p u p p e t   .  .   !
