Asides 3

Posted in quatorzain by maggie on 2010/04/16

Refusing to repeat it more than twice,
and deviating freely from the norm,
and stirring up wild words into a swarm,
and slanting angled schemes like loaded dice,

that's mostly pure intent, it's partly vice,
that's mostly finding freedom in the form,
it's partly full surrender to the storm,
and never judging passion by its price.

Don't mind the girl, it's all up in her mind,
unnaturally infused with pain and guilt
demolishing the structures they'd had built
to keep the girl controlled, composed, confined
   inside the lies of psychotherapy:
   that's mostly her, but now is partly me.
