The Night Shift

After everyone else goes home, I am still on call. I pull out

The tape
The bandages
The scissors
The new pod
The device
The insulin
The needle

And I prepare myself for duty. I answer the beeps that have been ringing all night. I snip and tap and measure and squeeze and pinch and prick and keep going for just a little while longer

than everyone else.
