Pain of Glass

Poesy plus Polemics

"Glowing Glass Skeleton" Sculpture by Eric Franklin From “Glowing Glass Skeleton”
Sculpture by Eric Franklin

morbid bones
dressed with
ossified cartilage
work to create
crystal skeletons
ringing with
durable pain
sharp tortures
of tuning forks
resonant screams
piercing torsos of
tendons and tissue
unbearable noise
filled with agony
no one can hear
save the microbes
those tiny mad
toxiform agents
who hum their
malevolent chorus
to alchemic sounds
of a deep dense
infection that
transforms the
once supple
structures of bone
into hard rigid
girders of glass
