Pins and Needles.

This poem is by Monique Lalonde, and describes the sensation of pins and needles in or on the head or scalp, as some people experience during a migraine.

ECT sparked

      the Big Bang,

           and life began.

       The click


                    of static

              And the prick


                      of skin

           goes deeper

than the fog within.


And as they crawl their spinal staircase,

           the tick


                    of my body clock

                 keeps their marching step.

                  And as they carry their load

                                       I wonder;

        Which piece of me they take,

    and if it can be replaced?


 ECT sparked

         the Big Bang,

              and the life of

the Electric Ants began.


I discovered after reading this, that there is such a thing as an electric ant, similar to a fire ant! To find out more, visit this Australian Government website.
