fabric

They do what they say
They say what they do
The cord they cut though
Can't be sliced through

Unseen strings s......t.......r......e.....t......c......h unbreakable fabric

wow!

the first two lines and the reversal there, resembles the movement of a thread in the fabric machine... as the fabric is woven...

and the s......t.......r......e.....t......c......h

great!
love the way you used my 'thread' in your 'fabric'....

and how i love to unravel it!
:D

there's no unbreakable fabric... even when it is nanotechnologically made!
:D

the image of slicing through a cord is a wow!

namaste!

Hopper,
I'm always so amazed at how you play visually with words, and how you manipulate their feel. You're intuitive at it...

...in many ways this Beckett project is an enactment of the stretching fabric..... the membrane that gives and gives and gives and sustains all that it is given to bear.... and does not break... indeed, develops more capacity to stretch... and as writers we are part of this stretchiness...

I had the strangest dream about fabric last night... I woke up twisted tightly in the sheets, feeling as though I couldn't breathe... I wished I could have fallen off the bed and been released...

can be a warning...
both literally:
do you still smoke?
:(

and figuratively:
when you'd like to hunt simorgh, never use a net... you yourself will be in it...
:D
