Waiting

Like a lollipop
On two sticks
The boy stood waiting,
Patient, by his mother,
While some electronic
Doohickey
Attached at the ear
And the back of the skull
Blinked green.

His parents betrayed
But little tension
As they waited.

Tiny daughter
A pearl, protected
Between them.

Bionic lollipop boy
Plays with trains
Until the nurse called
