Inside the Cut Complexity
The mind was split & mended
Each perception divided into more
—Brenda Hillman, "Practical Water"
With disciplined palette the careful clutter built itself,
angle over decade, space over time,
crosswise and cautious,
until the explosion, off-centre, prodigious,
lit the intensities, star-shot over all,
hard, gemlike, pushing its points
into the matrix
and a slow large turn over the waters of creation
sent new thought spinning, weaving,
through the silver void,
into the heart.
