Leave a comment

The doctor that did the procedure
I had previously met
I didn’t care for him
Either time
too old school
In his approach with me
talks as though he knows everything
Like jesus was his son
Like he was standing on an
Untouchable pedestal
Yet acts more like the wizard of oz
Afraid to be found out
Of his lack of expertise
The medical assistant more than made up for his missing bedside manner
I wonder why they no longer employ nurses in this capacity
She was young, smart
beautiful and
her heart was very large
She loved hearing about the book I brought with me
The warmth of the suns
She wrote down the title and
I told her it was a gift from
A friend
That his mom was part
Of the great migration
And he was sending me a letter to tell me more
She told me her major was minority women breast cancer although her family
Lacked a history of cancer
I brought a part of her home with me yesterday
I thought I need to
Make those youtube videos
For my poet and writer book review group
I need to make the time
And share the superb work
Of authors’ I know that
Aren’t afraid to use their strong voices
Help them get out there
Always life seems to get
In the way while you’re making other plans
I hope it doesn’t this time
I hope I’m okay
Right now I’m very tired
It was a lot go through
