Secret Love

Secret Love

In the absolute quiet
of the three-nines hours,
the green glow
of the hearing-aid dock
communes silently
with the ghostly glimmer
on the pacemaker monitor;
whilst between them
their grateful owners
dream of youth and passion,
unaware of this digital love
flourishing, clandestinely
under their septuagenarian noses.

three-nines:  UK dialling code for emergency services is 999
