wrong dream


clouded awareness over came me

standing at your infirmary bedside

white as chalk in a floodlight

with mothers of mercy aligned in the background

sedate in your sleep after big c surgery

outlined only in halogen shadows

then, from your bowels

through the comatose daze

first a whisper..then a bellow



who the hells david!!

i must be in the wrong dream

i'm glad you didn't need my kidney
