Touching Vindication

A stroke of karmic justice,
nurse will become patient, victim,
in need of mercy not delivered. I can hope
the medicine that would ease
be diverted to another vein,
delivered in half the milligrams
prescribed, at best, sink water,
at worst. That someone’s lowest point
coincides, aligns cosmically with yours.
Let it be held in a grip
that has started to loosen.
