when we got home
we had to clean up.
There were bandage wrappers
and tubes
and blood everywhere.
Furniture had been moved
so he could spread out
for them to do CPR
and they had all been too busy
loading him into the ambulance
to clean up after themselves.

We had time
when we got home
so we swept
and we washed
and we put the furniture back
where it belonged
and then began rearranging
since there was no one there
to critique what we had done
just like
there was no one to tell them
they didn’t need to leave all that crap
all over his floor.
