from young it starts:

the virgin nibble,

your teeth clicking on the keratin

separating the nail from your finger

one, then two

slowly it spreads, like an insidious force

until all ten digits are afflicted

haunted by the stress

snowballs into a compulsion

years after you started

you can't stop

even in times of sullen peace
