Electric Acorn

Frida Kahlo’s Pain #2 is the name of this poem by Mercedes Lawry which appears in the Ireland-based online literary journal, Electric Acorn

The pain relies on me.
A gnarled hand
squeezes my bones, my tentative breaths.
I live with this thief
who robs me of everything, who sits
on my soul.
