SOMETHING TO MEND

Chris R-1-149

Image by Christine Renney

It’s in the gut
Pacing
The postponement
And when it sees
And it hears
It fades

It’s not now
That awful anticipation
It’s full blown
And not at all
Regular

It’s in an unexampled action
The methodical destruction
Of hand
And bookcase
Blood smeared splinters
And skin in the carpet

Something to mend and
To clean and
To rebuild
Like a lovebite
A bruise
Something to hide
