“Take care to guard against all greed,
for though one may be rich,
one’s life does not consist of possessions”                (Gospel)            

    ER: Diagnostic Imaging  

The x-ray films
showed numerous needles—
sewing needles embedded
beneath the skin—
lodged in the soft tissue
of the upper torso
and genital area

“Doc,” he said seeing
me viewing them
“them are needles—

I used to hate myself
pretty much but I ain’t
done that no more

since I seen the Light”

during the exam
I noticed tattoos
covering his body

on the upper
right quadrant of his
back was tattooed

Jesus is Lord
