Patient Observations (ED Obs, 30th August 2008)

September 2, 2008

On the Observation Ward
there’s a hanging basket with pink flowers
which I hadn’t observed before –
but I’ve just observed it now
and I’m vaguely overawed
at the nudeness of the petals and
the limbs of the leaves and
the body of the basket, hanging,
and I almost want to ask it
if it has observed anyone else
observing it
on the Observation Ward.

But I doubt that anyone has as
they all look rather ill,
and bored.
