Okay; another Open Link Night at the dVerse Poets Pub. I’ve been working on this one for a while, thought I’d post the latest draft (I hope it’s nearly done), and use this post to test out my mastery of the new WordPress Block Editor functions, which have been challenging my stick-in-the-mud approach to, um, everything, I guess…
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 recliner or the sofa; without
having to steady myself on the
dining room’s breakfront or the
nearest kitchen chair. I wish.
Instead, I grunt and stumble.
Coffee gets brewed in a painful blur.
I kick my socks toward the hamper,
ignore whatever else I might drop.
I could definitely use some support;
I wish someone had my back.
(I don’t, really. I really don’t.
I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.)
