Waiting room

Two little guys
testing mummy’s limits
the older editorializing
on younger brother
worried about
having something
small and white
removed from
his own ear
with a knife
maybe.

So I told him
how nice the doctor is
and how quickly
he took stuff out of my ear
with a thing like
a little spoon.

Now he has become
a little boy again
and is running
cirlces in the hall

a little past
entertainment.
