Vaccines have become The Big Subject Matter
Did You Get an Appointment a woman I know just a little
asked me on the street yesterday Jill’s husband
Eric said It’s Like the Toilet Paper Run I hate this
unfair system Peter said. Life altering said a famous journalist
we ran into at the farmer’s market. Shortage and anxiety a bad
combination my economist friend Sangeeta explained.
I Got An Appointment people texted. One even said That Was Easy
but it wasn’t. Friends would call with TIPS. Try the drugstore.
We put our names on lists and lists, spent a day
calling the number at the Javits Center where
Barbara got three appointments on the phone for
her family wrote down phone numbers all over my apartment
and then Ellen a stranger on Next Door, my daily reading
matter, said New Appointments are Released at Midnight
from the New York Health and Hospitals Corporation so we
watched a few episodes of Community tried simultaneously
at 12:01 there were actually appointments at Bellevue Hospital
my computer froze and Peter got them both on his phone.
