The Same Center of Another Place

Posted: September 2, 2017 in Uncategorized

Pain always takes center stage
steps right up head of the line
elbows aside the nice stuff
plops itself down refuses to budge.

Try to overcome pain with kindness
try hard to remember the good things
some things you don’t forget
cracked vases tottering on shelves.

Stop trying to take inventory
better just to burn down the house
anoint yourself with ash dance round the fire
now the same center of another place.

    Instead of asking “what is your pain level?1-10” they should just read this!
