Glucose - Poem by Sidi J. Mahtrow

Drip, drip, drip
With each life giving bubble
In the tube, the saline glucose solution
Holds the key to life for the one that lays so still
The plastic bag hanging, swinging free
As the gurney rushes past
Doors open and close
Then it's over

Life
Is no more
For another one
Who served his country
Will he be remembered so
Or just another one
Who passed
On

Those
Gathered about
Will they remember
Will they care -
One life
Gone

The
Gurney
Returns to
Its place
And

Waits
For Him
No

More

drip,
drip,
drip.
