The Impatient Patient

The impatient patient slept soundly with only a sheet for a blanket. 
Max sat, straight up — exhausted. Alone. Wondering if he was cold, wearing only a hospital gown.

Love Struck is a boozy cocktail — so sugar coated that you fool yourself, into the “good idea” of having another. 
Ignorant of tomorrow’s hangover.

Wearing thin, Max asked if it was necessary that someone (she) be there, in order to release him.

Shocked! By the question.

The Nurse assured Max, that the she was on the job, to quickly move his case forward. “Soon, you’ll be out the door.” Sure enough, this was true.

Three weeks later, he gave Max the slip. 
Formerly known as “Mr. Persistent” straight dipped. 
So long. Good riddance.

His gratitude for that evening is yet to be enlisted.
