electrical recognition

by Mary Frances Spencer

i don’t know

do you know me

have our spools tangled
wires in passing

or is it

karmic circuits

tripping us
as we

I especially like the use of "tripping us" here... the double meaning... of setting off-- sparking, as happens on such occasions... and also slipping up, stumbling... into the feeling recognition or not.

Yep! And I love the tangled spool image, and the whole electrical circuitry comparison.

I love the electrical theme here - most effective. As to connections, yes, I've been there. Great last stanza.
