When the Family Has to Gather
Mommy is sick. Dad doesn’t know what to do.
Red lights. Blue.
Phone calls. A blur of a trip. White coats. Blue smocks. Crocks.
Stern stares. Tubes. Tape. Films. Bags. Prayers.
Waiting. Just waiting.
Phone calls. Texts. What’s next?
Waiting. Just waiting. Still waiting. . .
