National Poetry Month: Day Four


In the radiology lab
where last year I was
(if not the star of the show
at the very least a very special guest)
given a lead apron and
invited in
as co-conspirator to ease
cajole and translate instructions

today I am
discarded at the waiting area
and he is guided
into the dark room without me.

They shut the door

and I am left
to wait.

Oh that waiting must be hard.
