Sensitivity

Image result for mechanism of a watch

There is delicacy within

Regardless of the throbbing heart,

the ticking bomb,

the clock set to alarm

 

There are cogs that turn

on pin heads

and tiny pistons which pump

 

Small bearings slick with grease

smooth out the ride

Remove the squeal of pain

as nerves scratch on fragile days

 

it’s not weakness,

just the subtlety

of the running motor
