If you have not seen any of my Poet People posts before, and wanna know what the heck this thing is, click here. If you are familiar with my poetry series, The Poet People, carry on reading.
The Poet Doctor Reads An X-Ray
Professionally, bones are black and white
(but yours light up blue, tones of navy and baby),
and the films show us facts born from magnets and rays
(call me crazy, but there is a pull and a shine); displays
of your insides, and problems therein (and the winsome
design of your ribs and your spine). Let’s begin (just divine).
Bear with me now (I’ll focus somehow), and see this mass here?
And there. And those, too. We’ll need further tests, you
see, but I’m sure. No – there is no cure (oh if only there were).
I’m so very sorry. Especially for you, whose bones are so lovely.
Not to be creepy (but I may love you, so don’t die).
I intend to finish ch. 4 of The Poet People soon, before I move on to the rest of the series, because I want to at least try tackling ch.s 5-7 chronologically (eep!). In the mean time, below I’ve listed the titles you can expect from the rest of ch. 4, and if you’d like to see any specific ones first, let me know in the comments. I tend to honor requests like that. And, as always, if you have any Poet People topic/title request, let me know, and I’ll likely fill it.
