I think I broke something

I have never broken a bone,
so I don't know what that feels like,
or how annoying it is to have to shower with a plastic bag over my arm.
A sharp, sometimes blinding pain. Tears.
What is it, six to eight weeks in a cast?
Moving on…

I have stubbed my toes countless times,
to the point where most of them are now crooked and slightly lumpy.
One of them doesn't really bend any longer.
Very unattractive.
A wince. Sharp inhale.
