Watching the Mountains Change Color

Watching the Mountains Change Color

The doctor, who plans 
to dismiss her this evening,
tells the nurse, 
“Go ahead, send her home
with the husband and kids.
Why did we admit her anyway?
She’s fine.” 
Then the husband 

says something 
he hadn’t mentioned at dawn 
when by the hand he led her in:
“My wife stands for hours 
at the window,
watching the mountains 
change color, mountains 
that aren’t there,” he says.
