2008 September 12 poem: MEDICAL EXPERTISE


The night nurse was a big help when my
glasses broke. "Oh, they're broken," he said. "The
lens came out, see? This is the lens. Someone will have to
put it back in again. Do you want me to take them?" After that
explanation I really didn't so this morning they're sitting here
waiting for Gilbert, the Activities Director, who
fixed them before (it was the other lens). Gilbert
who has been around the world at least
once, taught me that July 4 is not just Independence
Day but Philippine Independence Day too. He not only
knows how to fix glasses but
how to make me laugh so I look forward
to his visit.
