goosebumps facing the anesthetist

 
 
in the sounds  
of wheels
on the bed of steel  
resounding through  
hollow echoes
of quiet halls
between
I. C. U.
and  
I'll see you  
 
soon
 
filling the sanitized air
that hard lump in the  
throat  
brimming yet  
vacant
 
strapped to the  
white sheet
wired to VAD*  
-yet protesting
 
flat in supine
glaring at surgical light
counting to nine
fighting the night
 
heart racing
to a state of chilled
euphoric flight
