107: Pain: A Slideshow

Pain in two formats:

One is sudden, discursive pain
represented here
as a gold
dispersion upon
a cardboard-brown ground
streamers of pain
shot from the guns of your body
leaping away from the defect
like solar flares
shaken out from the sun

The other
represented here
by this black bird-nest of distress
is sullen and ponderous
rooted in one poisonous place
a hairy star
fed by fissures of despair
