Thicker Than

Standard

IMG_0836This morning
a girl went into the hospital
with her aunt
they put on paper gowns
were wheeled into operating rooms
masks placed on their faces
anesthetized
cut open
a kidney extracted
from the aunt
and sewn into her niece

A template of how to live

We take turns saving one another
