healing 
itches,
oh sure, it aches too... like a bruise 
continually poked
until it starts
feeling good. my arm 
itched for two years 
from the inside out- scar tissue 
woven and stiff like 
berber carpet somehow relaxing, like worn towels
or loosening  
guitar strings.

healing itches
and aches-
and you're never quite certain
if that carpet,
though softer now,
is really unwinding
or if you could 
stop it
at all.
