Broke my right wrist;
Switched to left.

Right brain grows poems;
Left brain spells.

Right side sings;
Left can add.

Right hand writes well;
Left hand shakes.

Two hands brush teeth
Open jars; cut fruit.

Woe is me!
What a switch:

Broke my right wrist;
Switched to left!

    I love this Jean! I broke my right wrist once and know exactly what you went through. You’ve spun that experience into more interesting places, like right-left brain differences and abilities. Functioning with the opposite hand is disorienting, isn’t it?
