Thorn Ladder

Blood rose
your body
the earth
line scorched
barbed too
within it
I’m caught
if you can’t move
I’m stuck
post-human
you and I
wedded
beyond mystery
on the cusp
caught
or idled
in line
on the line
to be named
anew

    The thorny spinal cords, the twining mix of blood, pain, and numbness–and ‘post-human’ is the perfect,killing term, Mark.
