teeth

i have more weapons now. and i understand about looseness. i have a happy trigger finger. loose as a goose. i’m not arthritic like i was. not any more. i have a larger range of movement in my joints. i can bend low in the knee. if there is a low bush i can duck quickly behind it. i can curl and unfurl my fingers in preparation. through my head around like a lasso. all the tough looking stretches a boxer does. i nibble now too. i’l show you a little jog-on-the-spot, a little one-two with the fists. a low swoop (the knees don’t make a peep) and a beautifully arching hook. i can kick your ass now. and, if you ever try to love me again, that’s what i’ll do.
