my lower back hurts
like i’m carrying something awkwardly shaped
i sleep contorted, sideways and half afraid
it contributes to my aching
and baths turn cold too quickly
i was thinking i might see the doctor
but what is going to tell me?

that it takes awhile to adjust
after the body loses a limb

and compensation on one side
always creates trouble for the other
