“Headache”
Painting by Tony Madden
From fineartamerica.com

dueling hammers
rain blows
compete to send pain
into spaces
that echo and cradle
the mind
they throw sparks
sharp and hot
blazing spearpoints
of light
pierce the pools
of the eyes
the mad battery
splitting the seams
of the skull
where the intellect
cowers in fear
of its very survival
against this
malicious barrage
disturbed most of all
by two terrible questions
whose hands
hold the hammers
and why
