Breaking Phase

Breaking Phase

reference framed
in hindsight broken

mirrored not in reflection
but reaction

lured by control
and its seeming lack

a trick of light
in pointed view

until broadened scope
reveals the reversal

traveling a new artery of thought
further and further away

from the poisoned arrow
of definition.
