painsong

January 31, 2012

your wound is open, sliced and tearing

like a mouth releasing a voice

in a song of pain and anguish, searching for its own meaning

.

breathe through the melody,

lick it like fire,

burn its edges and make it crackle and spit

.

then damp the flame

and draw the smoke up along the tune,

make it sag and cough and splutter,

let it bring tears

and let the tears salt the wound

with a healing sting
