Knees

It isn’t often that a poem begins with K.

That’s okay.

Percentage wise, zero point

Seventy-two percent

Ain’t

Bad. *

It could have been a J, V, X,

Or piddling Z.

K stands for Knee.

When I was young my knees were perfect.

They could walk, stretch, bend

And…

Oh, how I ignored them.

They were beautiful!

Well-formed, patellae parallel;

Symmetry i.e.

Knees that please.

Who knew?
