The doctor said
straighten your shoulders
your back is becoming curved
I told him
that may not be possible
time permitting
I have a train to catch
I need to walk on all fours
and pretend to be a lion
he wrote me a script
for fierceness
I handed it in to the pharmacist
who clicked her tongue and
rolled her eyes
a little like a deer who is trying
to look side ways at
approaching foe
whilst pretending to
stand still

  1. Wonderful imagery ! The pharmacist pretending to stand still as if you could not see her is something I believe we all have done at one time or another! The script for fierceness is empowering! Thank you! For sharing your gifts!
