26th February, 2016 (strings and beads in a foreign country)

by Brendan Strong

i hope you will know
what strings and beads
around my suited wrist and my neck
mean to me

these are not signs of
glory or money or
these good things that happened to me

what can be signified by strings and beads

these are not signs of
You when you’re not here
or you when I’m not there

even though these are things you made for me
out of strings and beads

these are not a moment, but a
scene that will be played again you’ll see
something precious about
strings and beads
