Hospital Segmental(s) 2 of 5

2 of 5

A drip of white glass hanging from building’s smoothly covered electrical wires. Not so much a drip as a shape blown by fire. Still lit, it illuminates our big board with the Today’s Date category at its top end: Wednesday 9/12. Next, the word Physician is written in black dry-erase maker: Bear/Feng. RN is below that, short and sweet: Debbie/Ella. After those lovely names, these two words hover well together at the bottom of the big board: CNA & Angel. She is often just a winged shadow that comes when I’m sleeping, not sleeping. She brings the fresh water jug and cold packs. My throat is dry and my leg swollen. She empties the urinal, returns it, and takes my vitals. She then wings away. Again and again.
