stung

today on the
fourth
my hand is swollen
bitten
by an angry yellow jacket
who, insulted by my interference
of his raw meat proddings
chose instead to bite
the meat of me.

its been a week
of general unsteadiness
falling down
tripping over
curb, sidewalk and hose.
and now, this
stung and swollen

what to do
in a week
of
questionable balance
compromised equilibrium
and somatic
infirmity.

a temporary
suit of
bubble wrap
might be
my only
safe solution

as exercise or exorcism, i write...for the eyes of others, for my eyes and heart only, for the love and the rage, i write...to release the gamut of emotion...to tell the truth and say what's often thought but not written...
