POETRY: JASON BRIGHTWELL – NIGHTTIME IN THE ICU

Nighttime in the ICU

 

In the arcadian night

she murmurs faintly for juice,

mustering all her energy,

fluttering fingers like

a preflight angel.

 

Dozing nearby,

her heavyhearted guardian

hears and is instantly there

with juice and tender whispers

amid soft beeps and tiny lights.
