I have plotted arcs with compass, calculated
Hard angles with protractor and arrived
At the inescapable conclusion.
The mind is satisfied, for I have found
A defensible position against
The expectations of all the others
Through safe, secure and simple surrender.
After a brief moment in logical
Triumph, a black shadow of emptiness
Seeps through to my bones and the thing inside,
The inconvenient me, surges, careens,
Cracks the walls in furious aftershock,
Revealing the flaws in human structure,
Releasing the sanity of spirit.
