My sit bones are raw and chaffed no matter how much butt-butter I used
these ankles and knees sound like Rice Krispies— snap and crackle and popping-ascending or descending the in-house steps —
back bone and spine—aged 69, are squeaking and creaking like my old gooseneck mic stand—
Is somebody somewhere whispering ‘are you a mouse or are you a man”?

Dude! Pass me that cheese flavored protein powder,
today is a day of rest.

lay it down for a day
