when springs are rusty

29 May

i think it was a car alarm’s intermittent horn blasts
arousing snippet flash images of a
a mother earth washboard gone dull;
worried by the sound of hope in her children’s voices
and so
she gathers broken limbs
weaving a neapolitan tapestry in silence;
a first sufferer catching fallen stings with trampoline sympathy and
sending woe back on its feet again with razors for eyes.
