Families

After my husband’s
saphenous vein graft, and
he returned home,
I asked his doctor,Should we sleep
in separate beds?
I might have bacteria
that could infect his wound?

His germs and mine
were intimately acquainted,
grew up together,
raised families
in the same neighborhood.
I rested easier.
We were with friends.
