a worrisome screen –
none of us could’ve foreseen
what was to change our routine.
Everything was so clean –
stainless with an eerie glean.
I felt myself growing lean
between hospital cuisine
and little caffeine.
All we did was for our little bean,
the pump, medicine, and saline.
Though the world seemed mean –
what had gone unseen
turned out to be our perfect scene.
