Knot spinning. Not still.
Reason? None. Questions:
Why is wrong one. How is wrong.
What is possible. When is the only one with an answer.
Since this morning.
Or is it? Also headache. Also stomach ache.
Also blood. Also Who.
Try to calm – just nerves. Just adjustment.
Just worried. Just Fear.
It’s only heartburn. Right shoulder pain since
last night, maybe yesterday
It’s only heart ache. It’s only love.
Grab the end of the knot and pull. It’s hanging out anyway.
