Fragment of Pain

Beginning with a single fleck.
That is an injury, perhaps
an opening. Probe with a stick
or not, it still spreads. There are gaps
unseen now made overt, a speck
that zigzags in the empty maps
drawn rib to rib, rubbing over rough spots,
revealing terrain like 100 watts.

  1. Pain is like that – thinking splinter that you just cannot locate no matter how hard you probe (and then there is the unseen fibro pain locations)

  2. And the pain reveals areas of your body, makes you aware of them, in ways that you would never be aware of otherwise.
