Complications iii.

romantic free verse poetry, terse


 

By instinct we
circumvent obsession
to feel a bit free,
at abstract ease.
We fit the pieces
love at first sight
modelled. A midpoint
without falloff; 
untargeted focus.

Here you talk about love at first sight in the hope of not making thing complex.
To me the final line ‘untargeted focus, sums up love at first sight.
Interesting part of this series.

Yes, by paring down to a spare poem – much more is expressed. I salute your commitment Nic.

Another little gem that fits together like an intricate jigsaw.
