The Doctor, Part 33

I feel good,
I get scared shitless,
I feel really good,
bouncing on my toes,
eyes forward,
faking with hints,
feints,

I feel good,
really good,
ready to get torn up
just like last time,
probably
a little worse,

I get scared shitless
when I start to feel good again
because
it means
I have to go
back again,
that
it’s Tuesday again,
the nurse, Jane,

Jane is going to stab me in the chest
gently
where the wristwatch is
with all that
poison
on top of the
poison
from the last time,

I feel good,
really good
today,
bouncing on my toes
under the flashing lights
getting ready
to go in again,
to take another
two weeks
of steady hits
before I feel good again.
