This must be the season of the stiff neck.
Better don’t stretch, don’t turn or bend. Leave everything exactly where it is.
Stop this woman from moving. Keep her still!
Stay warm. Try not looking back so much.
How do we even make sense of what’s behind us anyway?
In the evening, put a pillow under your neck. Or two pillows.
Lay down carefully. Close your eyes.
Whatever dreams may come.
Curvy ones. Gloomy ones. Dreams about jeu de boules.
Enjoy them while they pass you by. Don’t take them too seriously.
After a couple of days, slowly start moving your head again.
