Scoliosis

Scoliosis

To feel the burning cogs
of your twisted spine
as you fumble awkwardly
to slip on your tsunami of a sweater,
that has been twisted into cat’s nests.
Every snap and pop an eggshell
shattering against linoleum counters,
coated with enough Lysol
for a physician’s approving thumb.

The uprooted railroad
running down your shoulders
leads to splintered swing-sets.
