Back Twinge

My lower back is bothersome today.
It’s acting fragile. It wants gentle use.
The pill I swallowed didn’t take away
the symptom, and recall did not occur
until I walked a bit and felt it say
I almost tripped a day ago. No fall
befell – avoiding that, I stepped astray,
and now I understand my own abuse.
I need to heed this body, and obey.

(Magic 9)
