My tercet just published by Burningword. Lots of fun to write.

No Strings Attached

In Darwin,
Minnesota
the biggest ball

of twine
is unencumbered
by human

frailty.
No discontented lovers
struggling with rope

burn
anxious to be free.
No lasso-

twirling cowpokes
waiting in ambush
for that special

someone.
No timber-hitched
twosomes and threesomes

double knotted
like old sneakers.
No families

held together
by spit
and slip

knots.
Just a ball of
purposeless string

bigger now
than the town
hall.
