Poetry topic idea: injuries

Today’s poetry topic idea is injuries.  There are a number of aspects of injuries a poet could write about.  They could write about: how they occur, different types of injuries, how injured people respond, how people around injured people respond, treatment for injuries, and recovery from injuries.

Here is a poem that uses the poetry topic idea injuries:

All right,
it’s time for your x-ray,
if you could just put your broken arm,
in the most uncomfortable position possible,
no wait … a little more uncomfortable,
no wait … a little more,
there you go.

Now just hold that for five minutes.
