Knee scream.

 

II

M-are-I

a hot dog eased into a hi-tech bun?

 

III

Have you ever dated a claustrophobic frank?

 

IV

Medial collateral ligament rip, right?

Right. The right.

 

V

Physical the see therapist three weeks a day.

 

VI

Hydrocollator. Human

barbecue. Hot ribs. White.

Hot. Season me.

Stimulation: electrodes

flank my knee. Volley sparks

coast                      to                                           coats.

Little fails don’t feet me now. The miles

of 1,000 starts journeys with one step:

weak down the stairs on the walk leg;

up strong the stairs on the start leg.

 

XIV

A New Negro movement. A New Negro move

meant: think about it, there’s more to this this

than this that.

 

XV

Walking is nothing

but a constant

recovery from a fall.
