Bum Knee

Got a bum knee
that aches.
Uninsured.
Unsure what to
do.
Read about how to bolster
the areas around it.
Do I limp?
Is it obvious?
Why didn’t I see the recommended doctor?
Heed the advice?
Distrust.
Didn’t trust what they
would diagnose
and didn’t trust I would
follow what they said.
Now I gotta trust the ache
to not get worse
and my leg
to not collapse.
Bum deal
but it’s either my fault,
my body’s,
or both.
