I got back up

Slipped on the stairs

The second one to be precise

Water trickled from the roof froze over night

Carrying an overfull trash bag I took a step

Quickly I landed on the stairs flat on my back hard

For a split second I saw stars but can’t tell you which ones

Resembling a plank I lay angular head resting on the door

Taking a second to gather my thoughts and feeling for pain

Welts rose across my back I looked around to make sure no one noticed

I fell and got back up then put the trash in the can
