#2,535 By agreements

By agreements I feel myself
being given away in pieces –
a production manager – I’m
a scattered man-child spoilt
by time – Parts of me meant
to fit are bestrewn by puzzle
fitters [onerous] – I grew fast
on sound stages without my
role defined – a parts-maker
who laboured [less scripted
& directed] – who re-painted
black boxes pitch black – tar-
thick – I grew up in rehearsal
spaces – a fixer of moments –
a shifter of heft – flight-cases
my nodus to forever-resolve
by a spreadsheet & nuance –
Design is a foolish half-sport
dictating endeavour & fakery
over abstract faces – [my art]
