On the Arrival of My New Wheelchair

(should’ve been August 19th)

I beam in shiny purple.
Glorying in return to my
beloved great outdoors.
I smile at return
to mostly non-sore self.

Half a foot of height
gained by Sartorius recovering
as if by magic thanks
to strong footrest,
way better seated posture,
and newly aligned skeletal system
closer to medical science correctness
than this body’s ever been.

Realize I’ll ache tomorrow
with all this transformation.
Decide it’s irrelevant.
