Back to basics

the spine taps into essentials.

Step on a crack,

break your mother’s back!

Which kid stomped?

I wonder.

Hot pad back

on the back.


then lower

Remaining upright

to write excites nerves.

I wish I were

back in bed.

Your hands

grip your head,

hide your hurt,

hold that history

in your hands.
