cleaning up

Psychiatry 2: Student Daze – Poem 21 

charlie is a veteran
of two train crashes
and a spot of incidental brain damage

a tiny bit

sister schmidt
is a Charge Nurse
a disciplinarian

the linen is stacked
according to straight lines
and tight rules
in sister schmidt’s ward

is having a word

you’re a f*****g old blurgl urgl

sister schmidt
with flannel and soap
in hand
is washing his mouth

no language like that
in sister schmidt’s ward
thank you
