my back much better after injections and physical therapy.

where I was going, I knew I was moving east
because I could see the sun rising
from that direction. But then, wait,

I had that creeping up on me strange realization
that I was actually traveling west, toward the sun
going down, and I was walking now into a valley of
mountain shadows that would soon be shading me.
I’d lost track of the time, and all the hours
had passed so quickly into the late afternoon.
