I can’t remember the last time I wrote a poem.

I’ve been working on a couple of manuscript submissions among a few other things. I suspect once I’m back home and done with my deadline, I’ll write again.

Without further ado….

All You Can Eat

The city’s grime on my hands,
my feet

I hike my leg into the sink
watch the dark water
rinse down the drain

no homeless
no bikes
no traffic
just me
and my feet

I wonder how long
before I am obese

like the man picking a quarter cup of coffee
out of the garbage

all I can eat
every day
I’ll go
and stay
for 2 hours
4 kheers after 3 servings of chicken tikka

I’ve eaten enough
now straight to the source
I’ll fill the bowl
with rice pudding and rose petals
and soak

no more food

time to starve

I think I have one.

A fact about me: I’ve never broken a bone in my body. I don’t think anything is broken, but I also don’t think it’s simple bruising.

I am right-handed and it’s my right side, but this (sitting, typing) isn’t bothering me at all. It’s more the cumulative overdoing. I think I can blog.

Happened Thursday and has gotten progressively more painful and limiting. But maybe it’s more painful because I still went to yoga class Thursday evening. I couldn’t do much cobra, but I did everything else. Friday, I can’t remember much of what I did.

Annie has been sick and awake in the middle of the night needing all sorts of things, so that doesn’t help. Two nights in-a-row so far. I’ve still been fighting off a weird virus myself, on-again, off-again. A mild cough, pathetic actually, it’s so small.

Ibuprofin and aspirin and ice packs. When I feel better, I do a lot. I hate to be too lazy. Okay, I used to hate to be lazy but that was before I started my blog.

Now will try to soak in those good Dead Sea salts I buy cheap from a company in Oregon. I have been buying my massage oils and essential oils and Dead Sea salts from them for over 20 years. I can’t say I’m crazy about their website, but I can say I’m crazy about their selection and prices.

I don’t have any birch oil, but birch oil is good for aches and pains. Now you know.

Here is a skeleton for you.
