Thick water

More on the hospital experience. I never knew there was such a thing as thick water.

Until I experienced
The horror
Of all liquids thickened
With cornstarch
And a speech therapist
Who refused
To give me
The swallow test
I learned the joys
Of clear cold water
A green salad
A speech therapist
Delighted to give me
The swallow test
After I fired
The first one.
