A nurse clicks my arm to the line

A nurse clicks my arm to the line

in the middle of the
first season a group of
college kids
portal through Brooklyn––

Have you considered spiritual healing?

            my eyebrows crunch together

                        Like ayahuasca?

He nods
shrugs over
his shoulder
no one’s listening

Sometimes the disease
is a spiritual problem

that night he leaves
the kids on TV find
the magical world
from a
children’s book
and the nurse never returns.
