Over and In

Up
Down
Surety
Doubt

A mind waiting to settle
Only to take flight from the favored bud
If not
Then back to the spiral
Crawling
Bent over backwards
My elbow hurts
Waving a flag
With colours inverted in the dark

Left
Right
Alone
Together

None the same
Nested square pegs in triangular holes
Holding weakly with superhuman strength
A solid idea
Still unformed
Glowing in the fading shadows
The blinders so hard to see

Above
Below
Open
Shut

Listening to the song
Familiar in novelty
A newness drowning in nostalgia

Contradictions hurt
As they heal
