hell

        here is my perfection
        and there is my hell
        here I interpret
        and there I suffer
        here I translate
        and there -- I cry in pain

        here is the fixation
        the tremor in stone
        the perfect prismatic moment

        there is the material
        the agonies and suffering
        the crude concrete accretion

        here is my perfection
        and there is my hell

        I tune it, I rewrite it
        I play it, I get the noise down
        presented for your pleasure
        (or to ease) your pain?

        here is my work
        and everywhere else
        is my hell

        I sweat blood for these words
        even when I struggle
        to feel them
