a few rough edges

By Adam Gibson ©

i have an ache in the hip

that just won't quit
a throb in my thigh
that bears down thick

there is a scar on my heart
that can't be smoothed
a thud in my blood
that hasn't moved

i have a stab in my ear
that's pierced my drum
a crick in my neck
that twists undone

there is a burn on my skin
that blisters pink
a buzz in my cortex
that kills me to think

i've a break in my bones
that cannot be cast
a heart that is sealed
against all past.
