Code Blue!
Two words that shot
Pure and unrefined
Adrenaline into my
Circulation, while
This man's opened

Across my mouth
Blinding me momentarily
Soaking my clothes
And four years of medical school
Were forgotten instantly
As I stared stonely
at the floor where
this bloodied, morphous
blob died upon my toes
