Are we there yet?

This is not the first time in the course of this travail that I have asked the question. I suspect it will also not be the last.

He says
I’m doing better
But not better enough
To drop a medication.
I ask
He smiles and says
We’ll consider it
In four or five years.
I feel like the child
In the backseat
Of the car.
Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?
How about now?
Not yet.
Four years
Five years
A million years.
Are we there yet?
