A Weight Off My Mind

Pain recedes now
the plaster weight
removed, my arm
reluctant to work.

My handbag now
an arsenal of help:
homeopathic arnica
panadol, tendonitis
cream, moisturiser,
lipstick for looking
good, redder than
blood. I can't believe

I brought so few
outfits for six weeks.
I go shopping, I

these cheeses, wines,
gluten free breads,
organic soups, butter,
beef, lamb; supermarkets

savage my senses.
Hang the expense!
