Darkness Visible


Now that we have
pathologised Despair,
medicalised grief,

and compartmentalised
the edges of normal
to insanity’s domain,

and unpicked agonies,
textures and hues
with easy substitutes
of platitudes and pills.

Can we finally acknowledge
our unwritten goal?

To deprive the poor few
of a fearful descent
to the core, where
a glowing roar erupts.
