***
Uncomfortable as a tight pair of tights
of utter synthetic tissue,
that only brings me issues.
I’m getting weary of it, can’t wait
till I can take it off
Then scratch my legs, and rub them
free of edge marks
cream them off their dryness.

Uncomfortable as that old
unspoken word that once
stood in my throat
and would not come out
as much as I tried to
cough it off.

Not even syrups helped
No medicine I found
for that old weariness
caused by the thorny
bushes of my clear mind.
