feathered flesh that never will arrive

The Thing of Pain

Wake from 180 degree pain
rise to 90 degree pain

Pain’s the thing

Don’t use that arm
it don’t work

One thing I know:
hurt

Wake to ache

Now No Later

Black cat crouches
in tense quiver
body shifting tensions
watching darting birds
outside screen
which keeps her in
and them out
her nerves anticipating feathered flesh
that never will arrive
