angst cycle (iii) — [ф] (ii)

thing is
it’s not my choice
if you understand me

a depend on
who knows you
better than you
a depends too

a won’t say a spouse
or a mother
or for that matter
an elderly cat
they’re all wrong
but right

think now
a friendly
not thunderstorm
not icestorm
no

it is a human thing
hail in the psyche
les grecs anciens savaient
being human
i like their model
but it’s still human
which doesn’t
really
distil the character

this pub is full
of the physically shocked
shaking hands
disabled speech
only thing is
when i look round
properly
i’m talking bollox
