NaPoWriMo 2021 Day 11

Untitled #11 by Larry Mawby

a net is a cluster

of holes kept apart

by strings.

fish net, bird net, hair net,

all holes separated by strings.

in physics, string theory

says everything is like that:

emptiness kept apart by strings.

[sort of]

but this is poetry, not science,

so our takeaway: a net is

a cluster of holes kept apart by strings.

fun fact: in a net,

if you cut a string,

you’ve made one less hole.

that is true, for sure.
