FIRST NAIL
(4/18/14)


the spike
goes in
and the pain
is immense

you wonder
what
has brought
you
to this point

hubris?

prophesy?

coincidence?

the reason
no longer matters
as more blood
begins
to flow

they
have big plans
for you

they
secure
your other
arm
and raise
the hammer
again

your scourge
now
a diminished
memory

the real
suffering
is about
to begin

Spring
is here
