Judith Wozniak

 

 

 

Recovery room.

My words dissolve in the fog
of my mask. I peer at faces
through a spy hole lens,

try to join the fragments.
They slip through my brain
like egg-white through fingers.

Strangers call my name,
speak through seashells.
The clock slips, drips time.

The snap of sterile gloves,
before their cold caress.
The door clicks shut.

My shadow leaks out across
a buy lasix no rx lozenge of light on the floor.
The suck of his breath mirrors mine.
