Pinched nerve knotted muscle dreadfulness

in my neck just as I held that African necklace

to my throat.  Ach! Was it cursed?

The gorgeous fat ochre bead so stunning

nevertheless stabbing pain took me away

and superstition kept me from going back.

My neck my Achilles heel my raison d’etre

my love and my nemesis tries to tell me All

yet I fail to comprehend.
