General
by David Heulfryn

 

Anxiety, stress, nerves
Thoughts scattered and my mind elsewhere
The wait

 

Enema, spasms, pains
Thoughts focused and my mind on the moment
Almost time

 

Naked, gown, slippers
The wait is over and I feel relief
The walk down

 

BP cuff, electrodes, venflon
Watching them work efficiently to put me under
The fluid

 

No tiredness, no fading, suddenly nothing
Minutes and hours of ignorance, no control, no knowledge
The time

 

Suddenly back, drowsy, oxygen
Questions and concerns but no pain
The recovery

 

Fidgeting, groaning, need to sleep
Moved back to the ward and my bed
The peace
