Push the covers
Dried-out mouth. Kitchen. Water.
Still three hours sleep on the clock.
Wake at 6:50 am –
Now it would be great to sleep.
Typical sleep psychology.
Left a foot below the operated one
And swing out like a crane
Step-out of bed.
Find my balance
Slow tripping to the bathroom.
After all make myself presentable
For my lady surgeon!
Coffee at the small LK KOR Café
Where it’s not crowded as in the
Row-by-row waiting passages.
Check out the signboard and see
The construction of a small roof light
Just right for the situation we’ll need
For Mrs IRA’s habitat.
I recall having waited over an hour
To be called up for after-OP care
But that meant to be here at reception
At 8am and not at 10 am.
Now this time it’ll be lunchtime.
At one Pm Doc S. appears as I am
Eating an apple slice and drink a cup
It’s good she says stay there and eat
I have not been informed
Sat in the coffee place when a sister
Has announced Dr S’s emergency OP.
- I’m glad.
For Dr S. I’ll wait all morning without
The way back was cumbersome.
At the changeover in Handelskai
My train to H/S at platform 12
Left in front of my nose.
Well I couldn’t run to catch it in
Time with my operated hip.
At H/S I forgot to validate my
Train card and arrived at Weidling
Train station exhausted –
I was on the go since six am with
A hip joint operated twelve days
However I bought some groceries
At the Spar shop and was still in
Time for the bus 241 to Weidling
Yet B wasn’t friendly and her
Awkward reception tested my
Patience to the boiling point.
I doffed my clothes and donned
My Sony earphones to listen to
Ö1 while my smart phone loaded.
After that I switched phones and
Listened on YouTube to great
While B commented that I had
My earphones on
Instead of talking to her.
She’s only critique pur and that
At all times.
