XV

these days are best spent watching in

seated silence, benches placed, rows

angled outside of wards. From here

we can be, look –

-ing through, for the sick to be seen

 

there on their sides, evidence of the human:

footprints and hands by vials of god

while children sleep to ignore insides

 

a hospital, an aching room, these

dishes multiply themselves as walls

sweat slowly on christmas day with

 

lessons learned for all of us
