A short poem about being self-aware and not altogether happy about what you're aware of...

Discomfort

A scratchy prickler, a prattling stickler,
A patchy itch of skin,
A skinny stretch of me

A lengthy reach of speech
A screeching mission of words
A miss-match of meaning and mystery

So unlike a bell,
Not the loud round sound
Of teachers and preachers
Nor the grinding reminding of traffic music...

Here again, an angle,
an edge, the splintery wedge
Of conscience.
