Telephone book

Thumbing thin yellow pages,
checking corners for the heading marked "HEALING,"
dialing digits and
striking ineffectual items.
Ostensibly, only one option open:
the fingers fiddle over the final number
the heart hastens--
but the stomach sinks
when advised to acquire assistance
from the exact entity
held in my apprehensive arms.
