Putting My Feet In The Dirt August Prompt#22– Alternating Deficiencies.
In the puffy blue veins
that snake up and down my arm
sometimes my blood runs hot,
sometimes it runs cold
sometimes it does not seem to move at all.
So I flex my fingers, lift my arms, make a fist stamp my feet and say
Are you in there?
I’ll ask my blood
Hey! Don’t you have a job to do? What the matter are you sick?
Hello blood! Is anybody home?
I thought I heard it say
” Of course we’re awake Want to have some fun? Take us out today.
Come on Buddy Girl.
Let’s make it rain.”
