A.M. AFFLICTIONS: A POEM

Waking Up After 70 — Yow! What Now?!!

A wooden mannequin sits on the floor, legs outstretched. His speech bubble reads: “Yow! What now?!!”

I woke up with a leg pain
Something wasn’t right
The ligament that went to bed
had twisted overnight

I hoped that it could weight-bear,
support me through my day,
but when I tried to stand up
that charley horse said: “NEIGH.”
