Written for: Poetics Aside 2018 April PAD Challenge – Day 23
Write an action poem.
Oh, the discipline one has to maintain
to form letters that do not look inane,
when due to injury, your other hand
must be utilized, a drain on the brain.
Next, using only one finger of left
hand to type, while right is hefted
in the air, casted and swollen.
Finding all of this hard to digest.
Why not compose on computer, you ask,
it would leave you with an easier task?
Alas, paper and pen is a chosen route.
Thanks for your patience while arm’s at half-mast.
