Arthritis

How did we pick up arthritis?
A toothy cat
That liked to bite us?
Through the nerve
Leaving the flesh
Grinding the bone
Into nothingness.
It came one dark day
When we were unaware:
In dirty water,
Unwashed hair,
Rust in the food,
Poison in the air.
It penetrated the lung
And lingered there
A jackal, a hyena
Of the invisible world
Invisibly eating us
Hungry for gristle
Snapping at nerves
Like a mongoose with a snake
Making the bone joints
Cry pain and ache.
Were you confined in a room?
Where it singled you out
Were you carrying coal?
Up the hill to the house,
When the invisible dragon
Made itself seen,
Caught you alone,
Entered the spleen,
Edging its way
Over the years,
Into the marrow, ignoring your tears
Where it lives until death
With its thoughtlessness,
Ignoring our manufactured end
And its source of sustenance.
