Take the help

I’m watching a man
doing a handstand
on a set of dumbbells
through my mobile phone
and I can remember the day
the checkout guy at Argos
asked if I wanted to upgrade
to home delivery
when he saw me attempt
to carry the box of weights
I’d just purchased out of the shop
but I said no and now I have a son
and a bad back.
