Spending Sunday


She manages grace and charm

With an IV installed

In her arm running upward

Someplace deep inside

Unknown, at least to me,

My job being to clean

The tip with an alcohol patch


And insert a syringe

With water and another

With heparin flush

And be sure to close

The valve and keep it dry

And sanitary, my cough

Better than its been in days,


The sun not quite as bright

With much more moisture

In the air.  This morning

The paper was wet and a cat

With damp fur rubbed

Against the resistance

She has against any more.
