Your body and mind go through a transitional phase in March.
This winter has been a deep freeze.
My poor husband is in the hospital…
an ocular view
of what pain has taught me
between the barbs
of a genetic prison
a nervous system twists
There is time between waves of excruciating pain where I’m relaxed, even peaceful, because the waves have just turned into trickles and it’s more manageable.
The end of summer is making sure I feel it.
desert sun assaults us
in undulating flares
I can grovel for
Now my mouth doesn’t know what
my shadow is saying.
