    And from every angle
    and from every corner
    from every spot of light
    too many to tell
    the surround sound vibration of life
    a constant barrage
    until it just seems unviable to breathe.
    Sorry, no can do.
    Please don’t touch.
    I hurt all over
    at most when I cannot feel.
    They get it wrong.
    The word—numb.
    Never been numb.
    I can hear the constant scream
    of The Big Bang
    the violent whimper
    so I become a little deaf.
    I feel every brush
    and grievous trace of propinquity
    and all too much
    for nerve-endings raw as meat.
    And in my mind a maelstrom
    my mind Charybdis
    thorough flicks of anger
    torrents deep as water
    drowns of woken daydreams
    binding bits of an elemental attraction
    much like love.
    The calluses run deep where they must.
    The feeling has not gone
    it’s just distracted
    Too much of an unjudgeable thing.
    There you go, right?
    Maybe you understand
    maybe you don’t.
    Either way
    stop flapping.
    It hurts to listen.
    It hurts to talk.
    Just staying where I am
    this act of being
    takes a monumental act of will.
    I am here being.
    It seems a miracle.
    And from every corner
    one more test.
    Every angle
    one more try.
    Every spot of light
    a flashing visionary fear.
    Too many things to tell
    too many ways to tell it.
    Damn near a miracle you might say
    but that’d be preposterous.
