On Being A Physician-When Death Comes

When Death Comes

Like a mistress cast aside
We dance
In unknowing unison

Down hospital corridors
And exam room tables
She crouches

A stethoscope misplaced
A cadeusius splintered
She waits patiently

And by and by
Death comes
Often unexpected
To reclaim her lover's

Best intentions

From the chapbook Primary Care, The Lives You Touch Publications
