Jazz Study in Time: Migraine

Jazz Study in Time: Migraine

How the body expends its pain,
receptors enunciating their message,

all of one pulse: outward then in,
ice pushing through glass,

metal’s red glow searing flesh,
and the moments between

the piercing and acceptance, the
dull and incomprehensible whirl

of lights flashing from midnight
to snowflake, returning, always there.

 

 

Abstract swirl

  1. Never had a migraine, but gee there’s some images/lines in this one! “ice pushing through glass” and ” lights flashing from midnight to snowflake…” I can barely comprehend that first one, but working to understand its sensation rewards me
