puppet master

~~a pantoum~~

puppet master, where is your string
master, where is your puppet? Tangled
in the fictions of habitual deception
every act becomes a stutter, grim escape

master, where is your puppet? Tangled
again, you lost control of your tales
every act becomes a stutter, grim escape
from the static of the blackness where you hide

again, you lost control of your tales
I thought I heard the tapping of a new play
from the static of the blackness where you hide
but it was only rain against the shutters

every act becomes a stutter, grim escape
in the fictions of habitual deception
but it was only rain against the shutters…
puppet master, where is your string?
