the sounds of healing

softly, kettle whistling

book pages flipping

TV humming

cat purring

pills dropping


bandages ripping

arteries pulsing

drain emptying

breast throbbing

thoughts screaming

i wrote this last week when i had an infection scare. all is clear so far though, but we are to watch it and take my temp often. infections at surgical sites can happen at the drop of a hat. i’m off pain meds, largely, and the drain is out, thankfully. missing my parents and happy to have mike home.
