MECHANICALLY SOUND
(4/9/18)

the doctor
seems happy

good pulse
rate

blood pressure
back
in the normal range

ECG looking
like a textbook
example

he pronounces
me
healthy

I point
to my chest

ask him why
I still don't
feel anything
in there

he grabs
my hand

places it
over my heart

"feel that"

he says

"you're alive

that's the best
that you'll
ever do

now
get dressed

get out
of here"
