NOT THAT KIND OF PAIN

What kind of pain is it? Stabbing? 
Shooting? Throbbing? Tell me. Is it
a radiating pain? Does it burn? Point
to it. Is it a pain or more of an ache? 
Does it feel muscular? Is it constant
or occasional? How severe is it? Is it
infrequent or recurring? When did it 
start? What do you think you did? 
Lift something? Move funny? Is it 
relieved by exercise? Better lying down, 
sitting, or standing? Does applied heat 
make it better? What about ice? You 
think maybe it could be stress related?

Different. A different kind of pain.

 This poem appears in Pointed Sentences (BlazeVOX 2012).
