“I dreamed this scene last night,” she said,
this unknown nurse, drawing blood.
“You had on that very shirt
and I was called and asked to help.
Why this scene and not some other?
There was no drama, no critical care.”
I looked at her, smiled and said,
“No drama, no crisis, just patient care?”
She smiled too and nodded her head.
“A message for us all,” she said.
