Hospital bed

Lost in bed,
head against a pillow.
Wires and tubes and things.

Nothing but bread,
leaning against a white wall.
Foreign static tumbling ear-ward from an overhead TV.

Cards on sheets,
making the feeling run away for a moment.
A run of four and a set of four.

This has happened,
the hospital bed.
Flowers alongside, and greeting cards and notes.

I want this to end,
the hospital bed.
I won't lie against the cold no more.


  1. Does this mean that you were hospitalized???

  2. A friend was in the hospital for a week. All is well now. :)

  3. You are too sweet! I am going to miss seeing your smiling face everyday. Seriously!
