Dreaming Hospitals

imagine yourself on a hospital bed

for days and days and months

drinking water from small plastic cups

a cup worth a gulp

not a single drop more

with drips and tubes

of liquids flowing

both in and out of your self

 

nurses, doctors, nurses

is all the human life at your disposal

apart from the two half deformed neighbours

one half blind, the other decrepitly divine

in your room, four walled

you are cut off from world, trapped

for days and days and months

 

imagine yourself on a hospital bed.
