Recap – Day 15

I’ve cupped ache in my tired hands,
between calloused fingers,
worn hurt like a victim’s badge
on shirt sleeves never dry-cleaned
wash
rinse
repeat
until sanity began to leak
and the salty marrow
of wisdom’s brine
became an acid wash
a detox
a cleanse
for the dead skin
now—
I begin again.
