four more pills

February 28, 2011

that’s how much ibuprofen i just took.

why you ask?

because i’ve strained my right shoulder,
and sprained my left index finger.

how you ask?

let’s see.
what actions in my rather sedentary life
could cause such an injury?

changing the channels too quickly?
shaking it too hard on the dance floor?

no my bitches,
none of those.

i injured myself,
to the point where my finger was literally purple,
spinning yarn.

who would have thought that the combination of not spinning for months, then spinning for twelve hours in a twenty four hour period,
would give one a repetitive stress injury.
