Lent, Day Eleven - and Another Poem

Again, from Poets.org:

To W.C.W. M.D.  
by Alfred Kreymborg

There has been
Another death.
This time
I bring it to you.
You are kind,
You know
How to lower 
I ask only
That the rope
Isn't silk,
(Silk doesn't break)
Nor thread,
(Thread does.)
If it lifts
And lowers
Common things,
It will do.
