Captivated by the Putty of Life

 article about Captivated by the Putty of Life

My music mesmerizes me into a daze


As I'm entranced by green silly putty


rolled and shaped into a ball and rope,


and kneaded and twirled into a pretzel


exactly as we human beings are morphed.


We're born, we're raised and influenced


by society and the people surrounding us.


Really we all are malleable organisms,


Always twisted and contorted some way


Via purposeful or unconscious manipulation


Into a façade, a fantasy or representation


Of what the world wishes, needs or desires


From us in whatever phase we are in life.


And at some point in all our relationships,


We end up serving as someone's silly putty.
