Justice – day 5 of napowrimo 2015

5 Apr
Today’s ‘thing’ is a mash-up of Emily Dickinson’s ‘After great pain, a formal feeling comes’, as per today’s napowrimo prompt.
Yesterday: contentment remembered. 

Before letting go, then questions. Ceremonious persons.
After: wooden nerves. Lead feet. Stone heart. Pain.
Centuries of stupor. Chill quartz tombs.
Freezing ground.
