I once wrote
Of feeling numb
But did not anticipate
Some day I’d gladly choose
To be numb
Instead of in this pain.

My head aches
And yet I have to use
The part that hurts
To think
About the pain;
Things get confused.

It’s hard to muse
On patience
And philosophy
When pain
Is the status
Of my brain.
