08. Neuropathic Pain From Feet to Back: Warm Coarse Sand and Stones

During the day,
My feet step through warm coarse sand
with constant warm vibrations from the feet up.
But they are icy to touch.
.

My legs and thighs are wrapped up
by thorny fabric constantly pricking at my nerves.
But they are numb to touch.
.

I sit on a tray of warm stones
that persistently thrust against my buttocks.
No escape.
.

My back leans on a backrest studded with stones
that pierce deep into my spinal cord.
Invisible blood, realistic pain.
.

At night,
I lie down on a magician’s bed
full of long pointed nails.
Illusory sleep.
