Between the lines

they live between
the lines, between
walking them
toeing them
swinging them
plucking them
crossing them

interlaced as if in a cat’s cradle
between electric lines

sometimes dancing outside them
just for the shock of it

it’s at that point when beauty arrives.

God writes straight with crooked lines.
-Spanish proverb

To read between the lines was easier than to follow the text.
-Henry James

In the final analysis, a drawing simply is no longer a drawing,
no matter how self-sufficient its execution may be.
It is a symbol, and the more profoundly the imaginary lines of projection meet higher dimensions, the better.
-Paul Klee
