Day 25 Offsite catering

At nights end
you will hobble
sixteen thousand steps
on sloped concrete

flames up
in ninety-degree rooms

mincing garlic
on too short rickety
tables

ladling soup
from too tall
counters
stock pot’s edge
higher
than you

and you with
no edibles

lean over the table,
bend,
touch the plate
at the height that
strains your right
hip

do it again
and again
and again

dinner for twelve

drink water
eat food
stretch

make a date with Epsom salts
put inserts in your shoes
drink more water

Day twenty-five’s prompt was to write a warning to yourself. I should know by now that my feet will hurt and I haven’t had enough water.
