Parts of a story,
I recalled vaguely,
Some message fragments,
Came through the static...

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.

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.

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.

Listening to the Opry

It started as a memory.

After I went to a conference in Nashville, Tennessee.

Knowing it's a radio show,
I thought about country people, tuning in...

on CBS
Last night,
Another exciting plot,
And a positive spin
By the character, friend, Abby.
Pauley in real life.
She is spinning tweets
Like a caterpillar spins a cocoon.
