osteoporosis

there are some medicines for that
some side effects
joint pain
bone pain

my thinning bones are not a disease
but a hollowing of marrow
reflecting life.

pain
joint and bone
the side effects of pushing the past
deep enough to prevent memories.
no medicines for that.








this is the poem that has caused me to tear at my hair and swear mightily.
i've done all i can.
