Beep Beep: Hospital Room

imageBeep beep,  curtains were drawn. Ding ding, voices, ring ring, 169 / 89 still too high. Laughter, coughing, passerby seen through the opening on the side of the curtain. TV monitor, pink and green colors, what do they mean?

IV drip, drip, needle stick, can’t look. Garbage can lid open and close, labels, vials, tests, and more tests.

Mom falling asleep. Do I wake her or slip out quietly. No, she may get startled if she wakes and doesn’t see me. I whisper mom I’m leaving. I’ll be back.
