Nerve Endings

Our clothes are torn
and a steel pin binds our nerves
withering as we speak
from lack of movement
and lack of courage
to move against the pain
the entropy
of a sprain
that would not suffer
or be suffered long enough
to move on
so we left them to die
or go limp
or untreated
or whatever
too long
so what
our clothes are torn
and that means
it’s over
