O, this is the poison of deep grief.

Or perhaps it is the release of deep grief.
Grief does sharpen everything – it brings things into focus.
Everything seems both flatter and heightened at once.
The important things rise up and everything else blends into one another.
I can see how things that have been long repressed might bubble up and take center stage.
But I’m not sure it’s poison.
It is a kind of clarity – even if it triggers madness.
