Disaster Enjambed

Four decades collapse into an absence

of days. Mere blood is exalted into

right relation. Disaster is enjambed

through surgical technique and pain numbing

Intubation.

                       Relatives are assigned

but family is chosen. It is best,

perhaps, when the two are not reconciled

to distance or doubt, when the two are not

compliant to either mistrust or to

fatigue, but thrive without precondition.

Seems like one of those chaotic situations where everyone thinks he knows what's best, though everyone disagrees with each other.

There is "family," and there is immediate family. And things can be further complicated when a patient's own wishes/intent might not in her best interest.
