Health insurance or, rather, money can be a nice thing. Some people have one, some people have the other, and some have neither.

She was bleeding
And she was lying there
While they were trying

Everything

Everything to keep her lucid
Everything to stop the bleeding
Everything to stave a phone call

A phone call for an ambulance

Her bleeding was stopped
But not in enough time
Her body was shutting down

Survival would be a miracle

The bill would be $900
And she knew this
So she begged them not to call

Everything was a blur
She just wanted to sleep
And she would

They begged her
Begger her to stay with them
Begged her to hold on

But she couldn’t
They were too late

Her life would would have cost $900
And the debt would have been massive

She was too poor to afford either
