MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU ECHOES 297: LIFE WALKS ON TIGHTROBE

MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU ECHOES 297: LIFE WALKS ON TIGHTROBE

 

 

feel mutilated

enter hell in twilight zone

mist of morphine save

 

ghost stones enter duct

risk of burst gall, intense pain

in damnation fire

 

since that faithful night

concerto of near organs

aweful reaction

 

enlarging keyholes

apron sealed to wall off leak

life walks on tightrobe

 

Note:

Last week, I experienced an excruciating abdominal pain, not relieved by usual medication for dyspepsia. I admitted myself to a nearby Medical Centre, diagnosis of biliary colic with massive inflammation of liver and pancreas. Then I was transferred to another medical centre by Ambulance, with endoscopy and ERCP facilities. Again repeat scan and blood test. Post surgery showed only a few bile stones, but no cholesterol and TG stones. During admission, I found out the myth of holistic medicine and specialists tend to think and act in their own speciality without much consideration to how patients feel and think especially about senior citizens, and empathy  was a psychological neologism. Modern Medicine was hell a  lot of waiting for administrative work and massive medical bills.
