pity’s full face (20170107)

how easily
the fire spreads
just under the skin
along a tangle of nerves
so like a branch
so like a river
and her tributaries
so like the forking fingers
of summer lightning

how easily
the flesh is brought
up to speed on the
laws of entropy
of centers not holding
of missing a
final opportunity
to go to innisfree
