A poem about my body, pt. 1

my left shoulder is causing me pain

when I don't let it hang down from its joint

I was run over by a large man

from behind on the soccer field

this also reaggravated a porous scrape beneath my right knee

which had been bleeding the day before

and bled profusely then, when I was run over by the large man

it is presently healing through a brownish-gray fluid

my right pelvis is a disaster

but that is nothing new

I have a scar on the back of my left leg where my dermatologist biopsied a mole

It ended up not being cancerous, which is a good thing

I am tired but I have work to do

I have work to do but I will sleep soon
