Hot stone treatments

This is the time when living alone

Starts to really sink in

Quiet and slow

And you remember 

That your therapist recommended

Talk radio and body pillows
But this is the time you mourn your losses

You take each out,

roll it in your hand, over your skin

Like a hot, well worn stone

Before placing it back in the secretest marrow 

Of your brittle, old bones
