The Cut
  Tyler Gabrysh

Theatre sensationnel,
the Vancouver Aquarium
with its 4-D glasses, mist spraying
the crowd and all the live applause.

This window into Bi-Polar.

Sensory richness,
abundant creativity.
The vast possibilities that will strike
at the doldrums of normalcy.

A waft of rum breath, coffee teeth,
broken objects skittering down a hall.

Swabs for cuts.

The cut of inconsistency,
of instability.
The cut of highs and lows.
The cut of the right to know.
