calling

she knew only vaguely
what she wanted to be so
she became an intern.

to her surprise
she was given
burn victims
as her first assignment.

the ones who’d lost
something taken
for granted and
this gave her
new life.

she became a trauma specialist
and married the plastic surgeon
who gave her patients
new skin.
