October 4

Pale freckled skin, keeps organs in

Protects me from the sun

All this flecking, requires checking

To the doctors I run

*

In cotton gown, I wait around

For examination

New magazines, computer screens

Office decoration

*

Skin is assessed, concerns addressed

At my age my spots change

Scanning processed, I can get dressed

We talk short range, long range

*

Have the “all clear”, return next year

Keep wearing the sunscreen

New spots appear, please have no fear

We’ll do the same routine

What did we do while waiting

Time once spent ruminating

Now cell phones are dictating

**********************************

Eyes lowered, sneakers tapping, chairs creaking

Speaking is not what we do

Waiting to be called by you

I will risk a shrunken face

Just to get out of the place

Like the movie Beetlejuice

To vamoose to a new space.

This large number I have found

Now has me waiting around

Until the magical sound

Of my name fills the compound

Proximity to the door

Will not reduce my time here

Almost more than I can bear

My number is close I’m sure

It’s fine – don’t call my name yet

So I can get out of here

I am strangely thrilled to get

Time to finish this chapter
