April is Poetry Month -- Early Start

OVERHAUL
by GC SMITH

April one starts
poetry month
and I’ll be
out of commission

Sawbones
will be sawing
on my
vertebrae

Chronic pain
numb left hand digits
are getting old
getting wearying

C-5-6-7
need overhauling
bonespur
needs a filing

So dangnabit
HORSEPISTOL
in I go
for bone repair

Spacers will shore up
old squished disks
pretty neat
technology

April one
should be the fix
allowing, of course,
I’m not the fool

I’ll be back
for April poesy
soon as I can
move my bones
