i massage my weary bones and my skin turns red. getting too close to answers irritates the point of contact.

 

sore sifts for threads between histories of trauma and everyday lived experience. 

 

physicalizing searching, longing, loss. 

 

pain obliterates language, joints grow tired over time. the weight of a sigh.
