when it comes ..

A hovering hovel

a quivering bow

a broken bone

they rest below

beneath the dirt

under nails

sweat on lip and brow

beneath the dirty feet and torn dungarees

beneath the patches of green and patches of gold

beneath the river serene

or windswept lake

a furrowed brow and whitened knuckle

holding tight against the grain

the sufferer not yet

ready to let go
