Word Press

An official diagnosis
makes it hard to shrug
material witnessed
by ostensible experts
reduced to prodding
at periodic check ups

Increasingly infrequent
as this patient
pretends at health
at hope that meaning
might remake itself
in the interim

For now patchwork
holes in language
where facsimiles fit in
covering branded flesh
that fabric has failed
to make whole
