Wooden Nickels

Wooden Nickels

From the A and W Root beer stand
Where I worked
Once upon a time.
For awhile they gave these coins
To patrons.
I kept these

The Light

The little girl came out of nowhere,
Or so it appeared,
Bearing a new friend for the old man.

Neurological testing

The Neuro Examination.
I have had a few
And watched hundreds
During my time as a nurse.
I remember the first time I met Dr. Panitch.
He pulled a matchstick up and had me follow it
With my eyes. 
An intern looked on.
I was still sizing up Dr. Panitch.
It would take a few visits to
Grow to care about him
And his genius.
God, I miss him.

I went on the Combi Rx study
During my clinic visits
They measured
Timed 10 Peg

Timed walk

And my most frustrating test
The Math Test

Made me think of a circus,
Walking the wire
Without a net.
