extreme triage

13 Dec

nurses learn to never know and
surprises come like pockets of warm ocean air;
the 11th floor geriatrics echoes in heave ho giant first steps.
palliative is also far from the morgue.
nurses play drive up waitress roller skates.
the elevated trays.
plaster limbs are traded for sarcastic jello in sudden make believe.
judge judy hangs down from the electric ceiling
there’s talk of wheelchair races.
