My Left Hip into the Lower Back

Think with me on the subject of pain
Grows loud when thought about
Shrinks in distraction
Yet retains its most devilish shape in nightfall
Where is stretches and wraps
Pinches and cramps
But, favorite, uncoils in meditation upon the suffering joint
A mixture not of growth or shrinking, but of undoing
Of peeling back and going slack, fading inwards to unbraid
