a visit

Her leg had just been amputated,

just below the knee.

the TV was on too loud.

and Her room mate was a sourpuss

who did NOT want a visit from a dog…

but please stay anyway, She said.

so we drew the curtain around us,

and there, just for a moment,

the world went away,

and all there was was Love.
