Home again

Before they let me go home I had to prove I could walk...even with braces and a walker, I was stunning, Stunning, I tell you. Then they did the "wheelchair exit," The standard "wheelchair exit"

I retreat
From another run
At the hospital.
It feels like football
Though that’s not a sport
I have ever
They drenched my body
With antibiotics
Dangled the threat
Of more physical therapy.
I thanked them kindly
Or maybe
Not so kindly.
Here I am at home
With my beloved
The cats
The turtle
He opens and closes his mouth
He says
He has had his beak trimmed
Thanks to a visit
From my sister.
We are all home.
