"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

DOCTOR HEAL

DOCTOR  HEAL      THYSELF

So did you skip out of there?   You know

the  specialist reprieve?   Not really  No

The doctor looked at me skeptically when

I said: I don’t take  street drugs    Ditto for:

Not depressed     He must have guessed that

I need street drugs to deal with all that I have    seen

 

What’s your work?    ChildPsychotherapy

Oh   what kinds of problems?     abuse  kidnapping  trauma  death

Then   he retracted his skepticism   and became  morose

Turns out his mother is happy   but losing her cognitive abilities
