angst cycle (iii) — [Ж] (iii)

my poetry
is killed
by the urgency
of overwriting

my photography
is killed
because i’m no longer
seeing

to busy
being depressed
looking down

i’m going to kick
this fucking depression habit
not only
will it reawaken my sight
for my photography
it’ll reawaken my sight
for pretty movement

i will get the knife
to the poetry
turn it

but not for a decade
it’s so long
since i’ve had
dryness

the time to edit
there’s so much
drivel
that needs the dryness knife
