Cures for Pain

Once numb. Limbs frozen, crying to remember heat,
Lashed by the weight of night-plagued flesh.

Choking, room empty of divine, immortal breaths.
Heavy sighs returned while shivering unto death.

Hear now mother’s quivering voice after panged birth.

Watch her lead the children through each forest wild
And tell stories of every bird to fly under every sun.

Cures for Pain
