What if you wake up and are rendered as only a leg?

Sometimes I Wake Up and I'm Only A Leg

by riverfr0zen

So, there are the nights when I wake up at 3am and I'm just

a leg. I am my leg, but just the leg, and nothing else.

"But what does that even mean? Just a leg? Is there a thigh?

A knee? A lower leg? Any hips?"

No hips.

"Why is it always so dark with you?"

I'm a leg. I don't come with eyes.

"Well, one time, I--"

Yeah, no. I don't want to hear that, said the other.

Nobody spoke for at least nine million years.

Then someone asked: How is it coming along?

"Still researching inverse kinematics, why don't you

sit down and relax a little, Anxious? Make use of that fine pulmonary system you have flowing there."

Aha

Aha. "What."

It's just. Just you'll never know

that I am only a pair of lungs. Floating in mid-air.

Also, nobody knew that inside human legs,

there is a very secret and very long middle finger.

I loved the anatomy lesson in ragtime. The first slide was outrageous. I loved it. The poem was so doggone appealing. The writing was brilliant. Great poem!!!
