In the Manner of “Good Night, Moon”
Goodbye dance card, goodbye check in.
Goodbye locker, goodbye gown. Goodbye hallway cavernous and long. Goodbye fireplace never lit.
Goodbye happy techs, goodbye signs. Goodbye stand mixer, attachments and tin.
Goodbye lasers, goodbye cabinets.
Goodbye bolus, cradle, and table.
Goodbye Dr. Kastner, goodbye Paula.
Thank you for taking care of me.
I don’t believe I shall miss you.
