Pain In Couplets

Folder:

.

As if there were relief from the little agonies

found in the smile of a nearby pain free person.

.

Shifting weight holds less ease from old war wounds

than a trip to the kitchen for water holding a pill.

.

Sharp and quick to fade or endlessly endured, pain

carries a picket sign painted in bruises and sometimes blood.

.

Imagine a toothache, then imagine the absence of a limb

sliced off and discarded to keep the misery of living going.
