Zipped

A favourite moment is when I fall asleep
curled up on my side, totally relaxed
I slip deeply into silken serenity

Often I need to get up for a pee
But tonight that calm oblivion
envelopes me so completely

Surprised to find Dad and Nana
there quietly waiting it seems for me
Their presence calmly reassuring

A light grows stronger as they reach
for me and then I hear the zip sliding
and they throw me on a trolley!

It feels really cold now and I hear chatter
a corner raises her scalpel, it’s me she’s cutting!
Seems I’m off on my next big adventure ….

Zip
