damage

October 11, 2012 § 2 Comments

the conversation
starts to drain of color
about the time it slides
into that familiar pocket
of comparing our
damage to
that of others
so I stop
and listen
trying not to
nod off
as your scars are
catalogued once again
and arranged
like a fieldstone wall
around your garden
