Fresh Wounds

Fresh wounds are scariest;
there is no scab to pick,
no scar yet to rub.

Fresh wounds are angry;
they scream every time
you change clothing,
a mad reminder of ongoing
pain not yet coalesced
into a history of injury.

They are the most difficult
to ignore, and the ones you
want to ignore the most.
