How Can I Use This Pain


by  Emeniano Acain Somoza Jr

That you so unsparingly issue                               
In cups of blighting blows                              
Laced with acid the corrosive breathe               
Of aphids on petals of hope quivering                  
On cusps between one secret longing                   
To another – these sick little Hannibals,               
How they latch on the doorknobs, nipples             
Of these all my throbbing unknowables?                
Or, if you can tell me please in what copious         
More ways  can the heart be bothered too           
To listen to the dying voices, of words snuffed       
Out of a poem’s frame, unwelcomed                      
The hairy surprise                                                
Of Kafka’s cockroach?
