i am the burning of a chafed ankle.
i am the swelling from an infected tooth.
i am the gurgling in a sore stomach.
i am the sour smell of a sweaty body.
i am the bite of a slice of stale bread.
i am the sip of chlorinated tap water.
i am the brush of the nape of a neck.
i am the thrill of flesh and blood.
i am the am in the uncertainty
of being.
