Discordant Body

Muscles want to tear away from shins
Screeching in agony up stairs
But dulled by long runs

Shoulders hunch from mislaid tendons
Learn to hold perfect posture
To ease pressure

Burning bands of faschia down leg
Continuous squats inflamed
Push and rush of rowing

Ulna misaligned with radius
Weak wrists after writing
Type away anyway

Body parts in cacophony
Still runs, rows, writes
Nothing is predetermined.
