Hoping for a Fix

the cockroaches had been disturbed
They were running out from under her nightgown
on to the gurney the firemen were holding.
Where were they coming from?
The corpulent woman pretended not to notice 
knowing they had been living in her fat rolls
She was glad their dark haven had been violated
Maybe when she got to the hospital someone would fix her
She had been living in the dark with these creatures for a long time
