Six Word Saturday

I Wish Someone Had My Back

I don’t, really. I really don’t.
I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.
I wish I had someone else’s back.

I wish that I could walk to the kitchen
without stopping to lean and stretch
on the back of the sofa, on the
dining room’s breakfront, on the
nearest kitchen chair. I wish.

Instead I grunt and stumble.
Coffee gets brewed in a painful blur.
I wish that someone had my back.
I wish I had someone else’s.

  1. As kind and generous as I am, I can’t offer a swap. Sorry!
    A great poem, though, Ron. It oozes pain, but with sense of humour still surviving.
    Perhaps I should change the title of my post to “travelling freely with book not pain”
