Inhospitable Ordeal

Asleep with lifeís love
eighty-seven-year cocoon
sounds warning bells of distress
snatched from safe bed-womb
into ambulance shoved
not yet scheduled for metamorphosis

Isolated from genuine affection
wearing only under garments
esteemed a new body for inspection
no sentient being but assignment
testing leads to pneumonia diagnosis

In foreign bed amid pool of masked strangers
lucid but confused too shy his needs to convey
Intimate voices comfort by too infrequent phone calls
true loves sole conduit to assuage dismay
only sleep stems anxieties psychosis.

Author's Note
Dad's in the hospital yearning for home and his beloved. Tough time to be in such a place. Thank God he tested negative for COVID-19. Excruciating for mom.
