Back to basics

the spine taps into essentials.

Step on a crack,

break your mother’s back!

Which kid stomped?

I wonder.

Hot pad back

on the back.


then lower

Remaining upright

to write excites nerves.

I wish I were

back in bed.

  2. Sometimes the lightly pounding fists of a child can actually feel good on this old bacl.

  3. I know the feeling. I have arthritis and some days my back is killing me! ♡☆

    • 😦 I totally blame the hotel bed we were in last week. Saggy mattress. I woke up in agony. After a day of hot pads yesterday, it is much better today, thankfully.
