Once more I am in my bay,
needle in, bloods done,
starting the pre-meds
I introduce myself to my companions
Brian, Brenda, who’s the third?
better leave her be,
it’s her first day and she’s in tears
her partner lingered for a while
now he's gone
I notice her long, auburn hair
hair here is rare
the book she holds
receives her tears
all round me
people are hooked up to IV lines,
some in wheelchairs, many dozing.
God is present in each one of us.
"Bidden or unbidden,
God is here."
