To Find a Fix

it doesn't last.
it doesn't end.
it comes around and leaves again.
it won't sustain; only suspend
a swaying soul, not out, not in.

it undoes things.
it does things in:
disturbs, distracts, demeans, distends.
it leaves the mind a bitter mess -
her thoughts cut short with no regress.

to find a fix,
to fix the find,
means energy that's lost; and time
unburdened, free of words
to hear, to watch, be seen, be heard.
