CROOKED MAN
(10/8/10)


nothing
seemed
right

simply
walking
was a
struggle

pains
aches
soreness
and uncertainty
clothed
his bones

the most
mundane tasks
seemed supreme efforts
and taxing chores
were beyond
the realm
of consideration

the world
had unsurely
shifted
to a new
angle of difficulty
but he knew
that the planet
was the still
same

he was
profoundly
different

the day
after
a first visit
to the chiropractor
can be
a bitch
