long way to nowhere
Ghosts chased me to the hospital. I stepped into white light and approached the first nurse I saw. I would like some drugs, please. She called for security. I didn't think the security guards were going to bring me drugs. I slipped out a back door and stood on the loading dock. The ghosts were gone but all around me. The park was dark behind the hospital. I feared the trees, the creek, the park trails. And I feared our abandoned house and the long night ahead of me.
