Ache

October 26, 2007

Stomach made of heated tin,
cooled, heated, cooled,
quickly till the fibre’s been contracted,
stretched, contracted,
till the body’s just a ball of brittle,
frozen aching,
made of snapping,
made of broken knives –
broken stabbing kitchens –
cutting quickly,
stomach made of liquids,
made of cells and stitches,
coal pit secret scars,
stomach box of noise
box of freezing, boiling, fire.
Box of tangled knots.
Want to rip
them out.
