Surgery

Not all operationssurgery

take place in hospitals.

Some men,

like surgeons

so deftly trespass

on your life

your body 

          your soul

and never even

            stay for dinner.

How often we allow them
to dissect our innards
heart and soul
We place our faith in their hands

With feigned innocence and wonder
(as they have performed this procedure
many times before)
they push and they pull

Meanwhile we wince and grit our teeth
reluctanct to reveal the pain
that doubles
when we are left the bill!

  1. Hmmm…and how often we allow them
    to dissect our innards
    heart and soul
    We place or faith in their hands

    With feigned innocence and wonder
    (as they have performed this procedure
    many times before)
    they push and they pull

    Meanwhile we wince and grit our teeth
    reluctanct to reveal the pain
    that doubles
    when we are left the bill !

  2. I wish the surgeries were done with a scalpel, instead of them just going in and ripping things out, like hearts. Those are hard to repair!

    I have learned, through no real desire of my own, that I’m a good seamstress. 😉

    Great job on this, and you too Colleen!
