something magnetic or dyspeptic
attracts me to psychiatric
types, or the sons and daughters
of these head doctors. i have friends

born into the mirrored self-
contemplation of being the scion
of a parent you can rely on
to dissect more than protect.

let he who is without
sin cast the first aspersion.
like lucy in her five-cent booth
the doctor is in.

and oddly they are often
pulled into the profession
themselves, broken
parts hell
bent on breaking
the pieces back
together again.
