the ‘practice’ of medicine – June 17

6.17.2016

the doctor walks

out to the lobby

 

patients wait for

his wisdom

 

which he knows

is less than

they wish.

 

how do we find

hope when

 

the body has taken

a left turn

 

the heart has

hooked open

 

the bowels

closed

 

the head

banging.

 

the doctor walks

out to the lobby

 

where they will all

ask him

 

to fix it.

 

prayer and a reach

of skill

are all

 

that will get him

through.
