some open sore / hidden / gaping/ niggling / insistent

remove the chaffing mask / remove another

ignored for sanity’s sake /

raw confinement / the need to be fed what fits through/ very small breathing/

forgetting / how soft the self is/ capable and full / expression of feeling / forgetting

the ability to feel touched /still time/ time to allow

sift through death/ deeper underneath/ under ruined life / nourishment

warm enough for / deliberate not desperate / search

the age is beyond explanation /chance / what is now / then what is next

come out / precious temporary / clever tender face / this time if no one sees / you

have a remedy / moving  / less afraid
