THE RUMORS OF MY

rumors of my imenent passing

are worth another tongue lashing…

Of which I got

Quite a few on the spot,

for the cardinal rule of diabetic wound care trespassing!

–Jonathan Caswell

HURRY UP AND WAIT!

HURRY UP AND WAIT!

Those wheels grind slowly,

Not fast enough for me…

Spent a whole day

In a good way

Waiting a Nurse to see.

Awaiting an evaluation

Of my conditional situation…

For therapy and healing

Progress revealing,

As needed in my present location.

One wag said I’m back from the dead.

At least I don’t look it, I said…

The thing that was rotten

Pathology has gotten,

No jar to put by my bed!
