13 January 2020

it is well

I didn’t go home
2 nights in a row. 
Bad weather plus more sleep
If I stayed. 

I’m up to Eggs and Yogurt. 
Now also Hot Tea. 

It doesn’t make sense 
But it’s still true. 

I asked The Boy
How the new nurses treated him. 
Did they read to him?
Even talk to him?
Keep the place clean?
Or just show up?

Long pause. 
Thoughtful pause. 

I told him I’m not going 
To allow him to talk trash to me
Just because he’s bored. 

At the end of the day,
He wrote to me 
“I love you!”

So I guess he thought better of it!
