Multiple sclerosis

terra firma?

head wobbling on an unsteady base

fragile as a robin’s egg

pocked, too

will the fissures ever heal?

alien limbs conspire in concert

no recognition, just abstractions

more a memory than flesh

will they ever comprehend again?

extremities deadened

touch a sense sorely missed

grasping yet coming up empty

will the thaw ever happen?
