Only Monday

Monday: Almost did not make the Monday walk to El Centro. I’d gone a few feet when the leg and back started hurting. Actually, the back had been hurting for a few hours. Anyway, I stopped walking and thought about going to my car and driving to the office. But I told myself if I could go a little more, maybe I’d be alright. A few minutes later, I was sitting at a computer, a little sore, but not bad off. Flared up again on the way back, but I was able to concentrate on other things enough to be distracted from the distraction.
So much space in Dallas
seems devoted to parking.
Yet every lot I pass
is lonelier than a prayer garden.
