Poem called DECREPITANCE

September 11th, 2014 Evelyn Cole

DECREPITANCE

My doctor pores over details
of my recent X-ray
and explains that my spine
shows evidence of
crepitance
and radiculopathy

I delight in the diagnosis
although it does not
alleviate the pain

Who else has ridiculous
radiculopathy
and decrepitance?

I agreed to cook easier,
quit playing ping pong,
and end crepi-dancing

But no way would I give up
love and poetry
