Hospital at Night

by Una Nichols Hynum

the belly of a whale
throb of a great heart
heavy breathing

dark and light by turns
I drift in the sway
of a giant kelp bed

small nudges on my body
minnows nosing a hand hanging
over the side of a boat

all around me nattering sounds
high-pitched blips
that seem to have nothing to do with me

message from across the hall
You’ve never told the truth
in your whole life

Una Nichols Hynum writes, “Old fashioned, I like a book in my hands and have never submitted to on line journals before. It feels like I’m sending my poems off into the ether. But why not?”
