Hard Decisions, Horrific Follow-up

in league
admirable, bright artisans
atriums and office
brimming buoyant voice and laughter

then

beyond control or measure
actions of one
stifle, rein in, pall
turning day, twilight

till

unalterable courses
compel discharging actions
awkward, ill-favoured, fatiguing
yet done it must be
for the greater good
restoring bright, sanguine hours

meanwhile

duality is the ache
for discharged, principal alike
despite a fitting, desirable release…

tender scars find lasting residence
within this too-transparent spirit
