Seemed like a blur of twine

interwoven making art with meat

hanging from a hook

slipknots secret of the trade

with the cut of a knife freeing the lines

the trait of the hack is to leave the strings lack

making them look haggard

calluses on my hands when business was busy 

continual ties pride with my skill

grateful those who took the time to teach me a trade

while angry with others that used their knife to cut good ties
