a string in my arm
this echo is also a tinge
an electric chord
it sings quietly &the
right of my bottom is
aching it feels like
the stretched middle of awellworn drum
&the canchersore i've forgottOn
is there any other occasion which calls for a
finger to press like so & shiver?
stranger still is it for the girl who has in-house neighbours
press, push, squeeze everything, but hush that nefarious sneeze.
call yourself to silence.
(i suspect a slow conditioning.)
