How It Turned Out
we do not know the lab results,
are tracing the genetic squares,
but we will know soon.
the machine is dependably
we do not even know how to read
these data, to be honest, but used
the correct adjective with "data,"
so that counts for something
we remember you well
because you passed out
with the scarlet tubes turning
and we played with your hair
ever so slightly while you slept.
fear not, the results will come
(unless we lose them like last time).
