high five

within the hour i’m at

the hospital of KO

short for Korneuburg

already at 8:30

the waiting area filled

with ambulant patients

however a check-up is

usually quick

as doctors are efficient

but waiting for one’s turn

will test one’s patience

after all one’s a patient

yet more than that –

visiting one’s doctor fantastic

is always a pleasure

have I not spent some part

of my life

passing surgeries

two hip joint replacements

and one knee joint

as soon as the hips had

settled in for better use.

so now for the past three

years i’ve recovered

taking up my favourite

exercises of nordic walking

exploring the viennese woods

tested for attacks by man and


a high five for all surgeons.
