tension day

©2022 Michael Raven

twist twist tug
pull me out of shape
these strains stretching
frayed shoulder knots
strings going ping ping
snapping whipfire crack
at everything anything
world churning slip
felling trees of me
in locust buzz august
heat singing hymns
from when we were
young

searching tenterhooks
to escape
