AWAKE?

For Carry On Tuesday
“How long have I been awake?
....................... Is it morning yet?"


INTENSIVE

Motorcycle accident
ICU treatment
In and out of consciousness
No recollection

Chatting with the specialist
“Looks OK to me”
Discharged; allowed to go home
Seven days ago…

Wandering about the house
Can’t find the bathroom
Unusual behaviour
Frightening our son…

It doesn’t seem possible
You say it’s the truth
‘First time’ meeting of old friends
Asking you your name…

Seems like only yesterday…
How could it be so?
The events of two weeks past
Forever a blur

How long have I been awake?
… Is it morning yet…?
