under construction – April 24

4.24

the little golf cart takes us

through the construction

zone to the clinic.

 

the clinic stairs take us up

to the deconstruction zone

for what’s ailing.

 

between the two the ride

back out is much more

satisfying.

    This poem resonates with me. The concision does good work reflecting the speaker’s preference not to dwell on the matters of the body. I also love the ending; I see a double meaning that focuses on the wonder of life, not just the relief of a check-up.
