venn shadow 

so many things can cause the arousal: table legs, car crashes,
suffocation, curvature & flesh,
the gap between…
…individual trigger points for the individual,
like finger prints,
a desire to be unique but there is always overlapping,
stuck in the shadow of a Venn diagram,
each night the reservoir bursts its bank
only to be re-filled,
the constant cycle with no off ramp,
magicians are smoke and mirrors merchants
producing pre-placed words from hidden pockets –
a path well trodden –
the real poet strides out onto a blank page with no compass
