Pull A String A Puppet Moves

 each man must realize
that it can all disappear very 
the cat, the woman, the job,
the front tire,
the bed, the walls, the
room; all our necessities
including love,
rest on foundations of sand - 
and any given cause,
no matter how unrelated:
the death of a boy in Hong Kong
or a blizzard in Omaha .
can serve as your undoing.
all your chinaware crashing to the kitchen floor, your girl will enter and you'll be standing, drunk, in the center of it and she'll ask: my god, what's the matter? and you'll answer: I don't know, I don't know .
