Morning Ritual

This morning my legs hurt

When I got out of bed and stood up

They complained


Using us again?

Don’t you ever quit?

Mostly my ankles and knees ached

The moveable parts I suppose

I hobbled into the kitchen to make coffee

Limped over to feed the cat.

Meow Izzy said

You are very slow

She criticized.

I poured my coffee and walked over to the couch

Sat down with a sigh of relief.

Izzy stopped chewing and jumped up beside me

What a cat.
