We choke on our own apron strings.

A decorative piece of cloth wrapped around the waste
to protect what's important to you
                                     -a symbol of security

The umbilical cord is cut at birth
and the apron strings take over.

                                    -a symbol of connection

Only to find the security and connection
of the apron strings
can on longer be tied

these strings slowly and gently loosen
come untied
and fall
only leaving memories of what was
like the dessert plate
where only crumbs remain
telling of sweet and delicious memories.
