Repeatedly Destroyed

It’s the same pain
in different places
same old song
with different lyrics

hyphenated belief system
we believe in
elliptical answers
to parenthetical questions

it’s the same vein
unfolding for miles
nerve endings stretch
grace notes across eternity

humming through paroxysms
grinding teeth to ruptured drum beats
numb to sunny dispositions
used repeatedly and destroyed
