the procedure 

May 8, 2015 § 1 Comment

a failed surgeon 
head bowed in a
nod to defeat
instruments tossed
into tray
monitors powered down
old tires groan
as I push the patient 
out of sunlight
and back to its place
alongside the
other lost souls 
of weekend tinkering
drill press
from the gallery 
a sparrow tweets
a note of scorn
and flies off with the news
I wipe the evidence 
from my hands 
and head for the garden
peas cower
tomatoes quake
