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.
