Residency Years Recalled

Peaceful slumber is broken

Quarter after midnight, 

Report that multiple crash

Survivors are being

Transported here and elsewhere.

Up, leaving behind the

Virtual for the real world

Waiting, coffee in hand,

Xpecting the worst injuries.

Your eyes watch the doors open,

Zooming, your focus sharpens.



***Another poem attempt for Dr. Charles.

Oh I am so glad I did pathology residency! Autopsies are rarely emergent. I got called out for apheresis, sickle cell blood exchanges, and late frozens, but that was rare.
