pain

logically
I know
that fire is
not
burning through
my tired and aching leg
and it is
not
wrapped in bands
of hot tight iron
and it is
not
broken, cut or
otherwise injured
and yet
my nerve
is screaming
that it is all of these things
and nothing is
comfortable
even with
this pill
and that pill
and shifting
and jiggling
and wiggling
and w i s h i n g
for
blessed
relief
