Instant of Denotation

For December 29th the prompt is: Defining moment. Describe a defining moment or series of events that has affected your life this year

One defining moment or even a series is a pretty tough thing to pin down. As such, I'll be abstract and metaphorical with a poetic response.

Easy Hider
I used
The easy hider
of self deception
bandage upon wound
scar above it all.
Somehow hidden
free from interpretation

Closer to the wound
Lower than the surface
cleaner than the raw
Raw status of old pain
and lined up again
under layers
awaiting diagnosis

So I open up the dressing
trying to exhale
as I let the flesh
define itself to me.
