Be patient

many patients
aren’t patient
if there’s waiting to be done
take your turn at

nurses can’t give
everyone time

the vale of years turns
take turns to be patient, wiser
the main answer
what wound healed but by

patience visits
sits quiet with my own thoughts
I call myself
a quiet person

was a dressmaker
if a stitch went wrong
I set it right
in two words, two small words
