Her small name tag included only her first name:

Mary Beth  


Her khaki slacks, balled up next to the bed were 

remarkably clean, considering her work


Her hair- rust colored curls, 

cascaded across my pillows


I promised I would bring her a sandwich to the zoo

tomorrow:  pastrami,  no pickle   


I promised myself to take a mental picture

as I have seen angels so rarely these days
