PT at The Highlands I: Not Helping

Linda makes 40 reps 80

10 pushups at 5 seconds become

10 pushups at 10 seconds

hold your body in the air

lift your butt off the wheelchair

your small hands redden

blister, cramp, ache

Linda suggests leather gloves

helps by not helping

they must learn to manage

more than pen, brush, fork

bottle cap, they must become

levers, hoists, hoyer lifts

10 more, 10 more, again

arms must learn to carry

your blue freight

Akua Lezli Hope
