-know the thing rushing through,
gushing and pouring
-locate your brother
in a pin drop light
-look darkness in the eyes
-know that I too
have a heart! & be able
-say “I’ll be there”
-feel even the void curved out
by the impossible past….
Then choke and fume with irritation
Or/and drown oneself in music….
I am all that I need to know….
| I like the ambiguity of this, it gives a real sense of rushing emotion, a mixture - there's a real immediacy there.|
I also like the effect of 'To' on its own to begin with. That pause kind of sets up a mood, it's like a preparation.
feel even the void curved out...that's a great line
Fine poem, yes.
