sore throat in summer

15 Jul

moon rise at noon

sore throat in summer

wearing short sleeves in an Arctic breeze

this is how it is sometimes

i’m learning to walk with two broken legs

and talk with my mouth sewn shut

my head is too big for my body

making it hard to keep my balance

lying down doesn’t feel right

walking about doesn’t feel right

i feel as though i spent the whole night

lifting weights

sore throat in summer

it happens every year

i watch where i step

and somehow

it all works it’s way back into shape

eventually i guess
