"Yes," he wrote on my left breast.
We are ready; this is the right one;
We've got this; let's get this done
All others checked, oriented, prepared,
Poked, prodded, photoed, comforted.
He wrote, "Yes," signaling to proceed.
All necessary steps had been completed;
All boxes checked off; all systems go.
Blue ballpoint pen inscribing, "Yes."
