Peri-Operative Suite; first case

We talk about the incision line, and how the sutures
will cover the butterfly tattoo she hid from her father at fifteen;

and whether stage three is considered late;

and how the anesthesiologist will help her sleep,
and when the drip stops                           how she’ll likely come back

         swimming;

hulling the blue air like wheat.

She counted seven, back from ten; her skin, the color of rain,

                  and the blade guttered.
