#2,601 Minor Injuries

Mike Bell/ January 24, 2023/ www.mikebellpoems.com

[just about] squeezed enough
to qualify as a sample –
it would
seem so –
it was carried past me
in that cardboard receptacle –
there a word for such?
My stink
of piss –
dark enough to warrant
Overhead a breakfast
TV show oozed commercials –
couple of silver surfers fingered
their phones –
I wait to be taken
into another room –
I shall agree
on my name & date of birth –
enquiry will re-commence
another free-to-use caregiver] –
nurses are rarer these days
hen’s teeth] –
I’ll be fixed & walk
back out to our decaying state –
I dream of cauterizing NHS cuts
