Affiliation with suffering compses
prioritizes resource, shorter lines
condenses thought, cuts thinner
loaves to survive, presses walls
little space to move, bricks tight
baling wire holds packing tape
joins waning force, seals likes
binds wounds, thunder cracks
strophe creates, words tumble
as idea’s growth, falls into shape.
