An I.V. and more

I went spiralling down into my friend’s surgery,

into the needle they stuck in his back.

Heard them say, Don’t move.

Felt the hard force of it.

Don’t move.

Went with his eyes to the lights later.


You should see him on the courts,

the balls he hits.

Or did.

In doubles you’d make sure

he was on your side.
