Panic, Wire


Thin copper wire

winding

thin as thread

winding

light and cool against skin

it assumes your heat

it absorbs your heat

it uses your heat

it becomes hot to the touch

it burns you

days pass

you spin

always winding

the grasp of hot wire

pinning arms tight immobile

unwinding the infinite spool

and you the bobbin

draw the wire tighter closer

you wonder

was there a time

before spinning

recollect

reckon

smoke memory of  time

before immobility

before constraint

stop

turn

in a different direction

slowly turn

begin the unwinding

return the binding wire to the spool

shake sleeping limbs

back to feeling
