T.R. San

i shut my thumb between the sash & sill of a window

I have a bandaged thumb

and not much to say

save that I am saving

bluer bones from no-

ise which means I

can’t write nor in-

vent any synonym

of/for pain which me-

ans all I can hold taunts

my letting go/grasping o-

pen the indecipherable.

Then Sophia kissed me

better but I don’t get bet-

ter my thumb tars

brown with too much

home concentrated

pulse and no ears.

I need an-other

word for need and two

others for body. I need

my thumb taught: it is

me. It bodies. Now hurt.
