Small stone 1-27-12

Pain wants to leave the body
but first it migrates
seeking solace
in dormant recesses
the newly plumbed alleyways
begin to compensate
and a searing ache here
becomes a dull throb there
a wounded animal
trapped by helplessness
tries to make itself smaller
shrink into invisibility
in a corner
in search of release
from a hurt
that no room
or house of bones can contain
