Check Up 2

Get up early.


Bus to H/S and ÖBB train

To KOR. Korneuburg.

Slow walk from the station

To the LKH-KOR. The hospital.


Coffee and ‘Apfelstrudel’.

Just as I finished – my call –

Room 8. Ambulant patients.

Dr S. smiles albeit she’s

Flat out busy.

Next the clamps from my

Knee wound removed.

I count 21.

Mü-Gu a descendant of

A sterling job.

Next to the x-ray dept.

Cabin 5.

Two quick snaps and back

Again to room 8

Where Dr S. notates my next

Physiotherapy only starts in

Two weeks’ time.

Yet I assure her I’ll come

To terms with my recovery

Step by step and week by week

Playing the motor rail’s

Movement machine.

I phoned the landlord to keep

A bit of heating going

During the night.

As sorry I feel about my spouse’s


I’m not able to do more about it

Within my own physical restraints.

Takes recovery time to become

A fully fledged walker again.

A pub on the way.

I need some hot soup before

I face the polar air again.

Another morning at the LKH-KOR-
