Compulsion Phenomena

Did I notice when reached for the phone
attention cannot stop an unshakeable force
intent on its mark: chemicals, stark
or as the process unfolds
who is the prime mover
is it something (i)nside
is it me
am I that which I do
or who that I am
as passive as a voice
a sneeze, an accident
free [will] from the cage
and he will tell you:value
enact your preferences, West!
seizing the gold will, won't
when was there a choice
can the setup be changed
questions are statements
until they're defanged.
