Dodo Bird

by Michael Estabrook

Never thought in a million years
I’d be sitting here
in my doctor’s office
in my underwear
reading Arthritis Today Magazine.
Whatever happened
to the high school gymnast,
the college swim team member,
the Karate and Kung Fu guy,
the tennis player, the jogger, the archer,
and the weightlifter
who could military press
his own damn bodyweight! What!
Gone the way of the Dodo Bird, that’s what.
