Voice

not the best about hearing medical things

I switch the channel if there is blood on the screen

& she is talking telling me on the phone

they took out this cut through that

& now I have bags needing to be emptied

got other surgery scheduled reattach this n that

as the silence grows

you still there?

oh yeah I croak

gimme a second

my voice has gone

I need to sip something

lubricate y’know

& I drink the water slow

trying to think of something I need should say

jeeze that’s um intense

how are you in yourself?

& thankfully she talks of hope new tomorrows

as I think of her dead sister

our conversations much like this

hoping for hope sake

there will be new tomorrows
