I Didn’t Want to be Alone with the Pain

The pulse of lava

     dissolving Earth

Deceptively violent in its  ponderousness

   eroding  the rock  of joint and bone

Sliding  like barbed silk  through the loam  of muscle

Hand over hand – Foot across foot

     like agitated tectonic plates

           a rhythmic, hypnotic shifting

A tear, steam  released from a cracked and shadowed eye,

    evaporatesLava flow during a rift eruption at Krafla in ...


               from  an ashen cheek
