Puppet Master

Gepetto pulls the puppet strings.

Arms akimbo,

Knees jerking upward,

The puppets dance in fractured motion.


They love the dance,

And maybe they love Gepetto,

But they tire of the strings. And of being

Pulled

This way and that.

One by one

They release

the strings.

They dance.
