Before we started, you were speaking, Saying something to me; Golden droplets in the tubing Caught your eye, held your tongue; You never finished.

When the drapes were all in place You cried; The tears ran sideways; Glistening streaks upon your temples; No one noticed.

Latex fingers, muffled voices, Everything was bathed in blue, It took no more than half an hour To cut away a part of you.
