Pin Cushion Comfort

Pinprick your cells
like ill-intentioned hail
on a hot, seared face.

The pins poke
and they are needles
delivering a poison;
like blood, it pumps your core
and you body-quake
and earth-shake—

the needles make you roar.

They thread you up and together
and there is the constant
patch and repair.

Each cell flashes “Fire alarm!”
and bursts into flames.

They will stab you
into a rage.

“A prison cell arsonist!” they’ll say
when you escape

your cage.

  "like blood, it pumps your core"

to your core?

I liked the use of rhyme here, I think it sort of aids the quirky delivery style. Unique ideas and imagery made this an enjoyable read.
