cuz it pulls triple shifts
despite deficits up the yin-yang.
Every process, an orchestrated symphony of
finesse often taken for granted like your
gall bladder which can’t earn you more social media likes online but sure
‘hellur-excruciating’ when function ain’t fine.
Incommensurate appreciation metamorphoses the ratio of physiological
joint range juxtaposed with errands outstanding, action without a thought but
keyhole surgery now
mandatory sick days with
nerves on edge,
options that sever nerves/straddle medication charts, a result of frequent disregard,
prioritized failure...on the one thing unequivocally yours from birth—a body.
Quotation marks circa dialogue of “Keep going” and “Hurry up” you
that you shoulda-coulda-woulda taken ownership of, so FFS
U-turn pre-existing trajectories!
Value deeply held reflections upon intent that demand
Xerox-copied multiple times, so ask
your body what it needs on a daily from that
zoom lens focus prepped to implement notes taken—ASK and wait...it will answer.
I truly appreciate that you took the time to read my poem. Kindest of thanks!
