07. Neuropathic Pain Inside my Legs: Fire Crackers




Inside my legs,
from toes to buttocks,
long strings of fire crackers
burst and burn.

Constant, soundless crackling
Hot, invisible sparks

Is there construction
in this chaos: damaged nerves
straining to reconnect,
myelin healing, spinal cord





Firecrackers in action in Chinese New Year celebration.
