lovely day


Sleep. So elusive. 


Someone hid the new pads away 
under some junk in the closet. 
They’re the wrong size. 
They were delivered 5 August. 
I found them yesterday. 
Too late to exchange. 
Such passive-aggressive shit 
I have never seen 


This is a plunger  (stopper)
in the bottom  of a med bottle. 


Swine just left it there. 


This is how the other nurses 
put away the laundry. 


See that ?
That’s a cap that goes 
on the outside of this suction canister.
  NOT the inside. 
They honestly scare me. 

It’s like working with convict toddlers. 
Who don’t care and don’t want to change. 

In fact, they seem to thrive on mayhem. 


Tic Tac Toe
The bad nurses lose. 


Dear Darling Bed:
I love you. 
I miss you. 
I think about you often during the day. 
The only thing that gets me by sometimes 
Is knowing that we will soon be together. 
I can’t wait to see you! 


Pony up 


So I got my dream.
It was like a vision. 

It was in the future ,
Me taking care of this boy. 

In a way, it would be unfair
To expose the un-ethical behavior 
Of this bad nurse- 
And just leave him. 

I’ll still take month long vacations. 
I just may not (or I may)
Do traveling nursing. 

Either way, I’ll travel. 
Either way, I’m good.

who let the cats out


Someone left his door open 
So he could sleep with the cats. 
When they got bored with him,
They came to me and woke me up. 
What a bag of jerks. 
Cats are jerks. 


Still love the blends. 


Seven Sages. 
A different blend for every
 day of the week. 


A nice card from the office. 


Perry Mason always said 
To be careful 
And ABSOLUTELY certain 
when a man’s life 
Hangs in the balance- 

But the Mom talked to the Dad!
And all lights are green. 
I have their blessing to send this letter 
To the state. Finally. 
They want her gone as much as I do. 

Rude is one thing. 
Everyone is rude there. 

Lazy is one thing. 
Everyone there is lazy
And no one even gets up from their chair
To help the boy. 

But dangerous-
That’s where you have to draw the line. 


Full moon. Pretty. 
Valley Ranch is where 
The Dallas Cowboys once practiced. 


Made Chaffles at work. 
The mom loves them. 


My blends. 


The Mom said if I prayed for guidance 
I would receive a dream. 

That has happened before, 
but not last night. 
Unless my guidance 
Is telling me to move away from 
The inconsiderate noise makers.
