The Lights Of The O.R.

Dodging a bullet,

the PET Scan loomed large…

results both good and bad


“Nothing today

to worry about,”

but tomorrow left unclad


The moment secure,

the future unsure…

prognosis under siege


The lights of the O.R.

 calling his name

—with hope the last reprieve


(University Of Pennsylvania: September, 2020)
