the hospital admin blues

26 May

with all the greenery bursting its spider canopy dance,
oxygen is a hookah den.
wires are unplugged from nostrils
and the soft, leathery faces of elderly rewind into children.
emergency rooms are ghost towns;
pills in puddles of dust.
animal insect humans overpopulate the grass dancing
only a cat bunkers half way up a tree staring over the scene;
fully detached
just like it will be in autumn and death and the law of averages returning.
