Poem of the Week-Missing Harris

The annual physical

Blood pressure 132 over 80

Didn’t match my homegrown machine

Weight had glued to 139.5

A usually easy blood draw

Gouging my favorite vein

But this nurse stuck the wrong vessel

Drip dry

An experienced cohort rescued

jabbed another needle

and filled the vial

Black and blue arm

Doctor listened for an hour

But didn’t hear

Frustrated by normal results

That excluded A1C and glucose

An early flu shot

But no booster

Missing my primary doctor

Who is missing in action
