Something Ruptured While We Slept

The pain was
like a dream at first.

It only hurt
the way you remember
younger injury.

But eyes fluttered
in the dark, that
something ruptured up in arms,

and everything wrong
with being awake filled the
quiet house like
alarms set to

the most helpless
hour of the day.
