Poem a day challenge – Feb 15 (backdated)

I thought I would write about something I heard on NPR yesterday, but I offhandedly look up the word of the day today and found myself writing something not from my head.

clamant
adjective

1: clamorous, blatant
2: demanding attention : urgent

clamant skin wriggles beneath
wearisome fiberglass that
holds fractured bone
and bruised ego
in its place.
