  1. I can remember as a boy having surgery under ‘ether’, a far cry from modern anesthesia. You capture the conscious unconsciousness so viscerally! Hearing the voices of surgeon and nurses but not understanding what they were saying in technical terms, yet the angst in their tone . . . Bravo! Well done . . .


  2. I must completely agree with LuAnne. You captured the surgical experience to a tee with eloquent words and the empathetic thought behind it. I also think it can represent an emotional surgery type of fear, when one feels a traumatic sense of loss. Great, great poem/prose.Absolutely profound and amazing. K D
