Laces of Elaboration*


Words strung together aimlessly

or so it would seem …

when in reality they are

carefully chosen

seemingly innocent yet with

underlying meanings

so hurtful …

filled with disdain …

backstabbing …

an agenda of intent

meant for targeted people

or perhaps only one


These words …

These laces of elaboration*

are not as cleverly

hidden as hoped …
