River of stones: Stone 2, eleventh day

Be mindful, pay attention! says my back.
I’d rather not. I have too much to do.

But

I can’t stand straight. My shoulders clench themselves.
I take one cautious step, a pause, another.
Reach for a book? No, that’s a bad idea.
I’m tired of planning

Ouch

Every move I take.
