Stick Dressing

by Oonah V. Joslin

She won’t use a stick
says she’s fine
sips a cup of
skinny pointless

She just makes sticks for show
handles like swans
fish heads carved in bone
buffalo horn
or antler
to win.

She limps to work
does circuits at the gym
runs circles round me with my two good
hips. To prove the point.

Sticks are for sissies.
