After the surgery, as the drugs wore off

he told the nurse, abruptly - 'I'm waking up, I'm not
supposed to wake up yet.'

He thought the surgery was
not yet done, and the anesthesia
was wearing off already.

That moment,
afraid they were still operating on him,
- that something had gone horribly wrong -
he thought he would, just then,
feel the scalpel against his skin,
sinking in.
