  1. I love that one. I think of the word “whims” when I see the word “notions” in this poem, but the effect is there: we are all caged by someone or something’s notions. Tethered by small strings so intertwined we only see them if we really focus and try.

  2. I am wondering whether this of itself gives others power over us which they might not otherwise have. I hope that nobody can confine me to sit at the bottom of their cage. I suspect others can only have such powere if we grant it to them.

  3. There is a particular politician who uses these as an attempt to gain some kind of power over those whom he detests. I agree with you that it only has power if given. I love this poem. Thank you!
