He Rejoices…For Now

He rejoices and gives thanks tonight
because he expected the worst and
got a temporary reprieve. He’s been
told he can make it for a while and
“a while” sounds real good when
ASAP was de rigueur. And so after
the physician’s appointment, stop-
ping off for a great dinner of fish and
chips shared with his wife at an Irish
restaurant and then home for a few
deep breaths and four fingers of
potato vodka sounded just great.
While at one time in his life he
hated the thought that he might
ever have to put drops in his eyes,
he now has to put three drops during
the day and one before bed and he
just can’t wait.
