I had a doctor appointment today so I wrote a haiku sequence. Also, I don’t have a picture from my appointment so I’m using this 2016 photograph of my husband pretending to be doctor. I believe the character’s name was “Dr. Douche.” Anyway, it’s poem time.
1. i like the light touch of the stethoscope on my chest and back, each tap 2. a gentle chill going to the doctor can be nice if you just... 3. take a deep breath i'm just going to listen to your heart and lungs 4. i overdo it inhale a good five seconds longer than i should 5. and hold it in for far too long before i dra- matically exhale! 6. just breathe in and out he says, breathe normally now i've forgotten how
Thank you for reading my blog. Writing it is as easy as breathing in and out. -Connie
