Heal or Inflame

Knuckles crack

bone over bone

muscles stretch

cartilage soothes.

 

Knuckles crack

skin to skin

lungs flex

stomach stings.

 

Knuckles crack

fingers bend

nails dig deep

bleed and bruise.

 

Knuckles crack

body aches

fist imprint

mould and cast.

 

Knuckles crack

eyes grieve

face wet

ragged breath.

 

Knuckles crack

whiplashed hearts

body of lead

raw and abashed.

 

Knuckles crack

again and again

so do you –

so do I.
