Week 4/Day 1. Rhomboid (a poem)

The first poem of the fourth week of the online retreat.

It’s always one side—
or the other

The pull
the twist
the twinge
the strain
the sprain
the spasm
the sharp prick of the universe’s voodoo doll

A blade held immobile
without provocation
or recompense

All I did was inhale
