angst cycle (iii)

angst cycle (iii)
a novel of insanity
(neither novel nor insanity)

these poems are a conversation
a guy (me, of course) talking to himself

they’re written
at the moment
of the moment
on the moment
nothing else

they’re a rawness
that had to be expressed
the insanity that’s sane

as such
they work a treat
but they’re nothing new
not at all
they’re old old old

as old
as skeletons

a raw clatter
uncorrected by reason
a modicum of consideration
awareness even

a skewer
not a reality

the betrayer
of her unintended promise
please do not identify
