Attached, balled and breathless
Cut, sharp as a scream
Knotted, clotted, blotted

Short as a tail tied to
A bald balloon 
Plump with hope let go
Up, on a waving farewell

Long as a hot white tooth
Endured and gritted on
A double-edged sword, 
An open-edged door
Of truth and pain ignored

Short as a tooth-picked ship
Painstakingly pincered inside
A glass green bottle
Tugged upright,
Set free on a sea,
Tied to a wish, as long as the world is wide.
