Through the Keyhole

I catch a kudoclasmic glimpse
Through the keyhole of life,
Like naked bodies in a window,
Seen out of the corner of the eye
From the top deck of a bus,
Or a timid sparrow in a shaft of light.
I somaticize aberrant emotions,
Electrified with pain.
An aching wisdom tooth,
A tightened deadbolt,
I wait for it to pass
So I can breathe again.

Kim M. Russell, 2017
