Pain Management

1. Agnostic

If there is a god then god invented
pain because that's where the real power is,
but invented it with a sense of humour
tyrants have to have or else they'd just end it all:
for god created the moan and the
groan, the expulsion of sudden and sharp
pain through sound that if held long enough
goes both to heaven and hell before finding
catharsis. That's a journey any sceptic can take
with an outcome so obviously fine, if
transient, and I make the sound drag out for as
long as the lungs can bear and hold off the
pain that comes down to that
one sweet moment of this.


  1. Love this one. It has teeth!

  2. Actually, could have been teeth, but I think it was my back...!

  3. Ouch! I hope you had some strong painkillers...
