all is in wonder

it won’t hurt if you do it fast
the needle pinch
or the burn of last summer
on your skin

but you crave the agony
so drag it out
like a scratch in the vinyl
it’s skipping

set it down in the crook of your arm
get it down on paper and don’t let it disarm you
hold it down and welcome the harm as a harbinger
fold it down to contain your alarm and then

breathe

if

you

feel

that

you

can’t
