skips

i am aware
as
the record skips
the same refrain
looped
a sharp pop
then repeated
in the silence

in the brutal light
of
stark honesty
there is no
gray
life is merely
rigidly defined
sets of absolutes

i tell myself
to ignore the ancillary
soundtrack
but it is in that
white noise
that the black hole
painshivers
feel subdued
