angst cycle (iii) — [P] (ii)

cutting cutting cutting
the connection
is painful
but not doing it
is worse

the image
the eye on the shape
of the landscape
takes me away
to performance land
for a while
until the tiredness
of seeing too much
senses a cease and desist

but it can’t
clear the sadness
behind the eyes

the loss
the necessary loss

all the same
the loss
