2238: My grip is getting stuck

My grip is getting stuck
in holding things – less
flexible digits & wrists –

as a kid my Action Man
suffered equally – until
a new model [one with

added eagle eyes – but
am I making it up?] – A
stiffening in my places

where stiffening isn’t a
thing to crow about – A
wee discomfort for me

for my imagined future
[which is all we know] –
enough to hold my pint

to my lips – & enough is
all we have – It will fade
& my discomfort’ll pale

for a while as my whiles
compress into a shunt –
I’ll hold on [here – now]
