Fingertips ache, throb with effort.
Splintered nails, dug in,
down to nubs as if bitten,
stripped and bloodied.
Knuckles contracted, fastened hard,
internal needles spiking.
Grim grit gathered gracelessly.
Delicately balanced, entire body weight
held tight by ten tiny pressure points;
Whitened icicles stabbed into
the softened crumbling precipice of time.
