‘Strangely’ says the way is seldom clear;
there is so much to fear from
past events where death
competes for living space 

emptiness defeats all
claims to common sense; 

you freely vacillate in
seamlessly complete
and utter vacancy 

conceding you are beat
could ease this dissonance
of harmony estranged – but
weirdly, knowing that means
nothing’s changed
