Concatenations

Concatenations

The catenary curves
         that bind us together
the cables or chains
         firmly fixed
at both ends
         but which
hang loose :
         not a parabola
but more akin
         to the graph of
a hyperbolic cosine
         a relationship
that permits
         freedom of movement
that can bear
         considerable weight
yet never loses
         its strength

Concatenations
         of the heart
day after day
         tomorrow
and tomorrow
         and tomorrow
creeps on
         this petty pace
