“But I always think that the best way to know God is to love many things.”

Hospital Worker


She looks young:
quick stride, red shirt, 
blonde curls caught at the neck
and thick ponytail bouncing.

She rings the bell
at the Patient Area Centre,
walks straight in, drops
a document on a desk, returns.

Only then, as she strides back 
towards me, the way she came,
I notice that her face
is tired, and not young.
