Twisted Connections

Strong connections

aren’t made from single

lone cables

of significant importance

easily snapped

and broken

fragile things


on that single

point of contact

of connection.


that strength

comes from twined threads

twisted and spun

over time

with skill

and care

till that strength forms


from the power

of a thousand filaments

and key

is that twist

not simply a side by side twist

as if wrung between two hands

but opposites

alternate opposites

tension created

one twist

pushing against another

in an intertwined balance

two forces

trying to come apart

yet that touch

and friction

is what makes that rope

that connection work

be strong

and flexible

as opposite forces

work to create one
