angst cycle (iii) — [X] (v)

the grief
is the scar
of the grief
casts its pain
over my poetry self

there was a deep connection is

scissoring the combination
mutilates the poetry self

now that
not to the considered
chopping of
the poetry self

but the far more exciting
mutilate scar and remake
not the poetry
but the self
that makes it

the absolute airless dark
tortures the places it casts
i thought to ease their pain
by killing

perhaps i can ease their pain
by strengthening them
by making them the blade
to knife the shadow

i think so
