NaPoWriMo Day 26: medial cartilage









Recent knee problems had me thinking about the last operation.


medial cartilage


first sedation

then the back of hand jab

backward counting

metal in the mouth

like sucking washers

or oysters with reisling

classical music as doctor &


discuss a new bose sound system in the

white room


you wake elsewhere

armchaired with waiting cup of tea

wondering how they spent the two hours

you lost.

  1. Yes, captures it nicely. The doctors and anaesthetists always have this mundane chatter whilst your awake. Wonder what they say when you’re under.
