"Swelling"



When you can HEAR
Your feet SWELLING
Over the hum of the computer

You know you've been 
Writing too many
Haiku

Time to put
One's feet
Up

Don't laugh
I'm not a
Footballer

We Old 
South China Seas
Hands

Are entitled to
Wear a sarong
When the feeling takes us

These were my feet
When I was 
A younger man

Before oedema
And medications
Raised their ugly heads!

And these are the feet
Of an older man.
Still wearing the sarong though!
