I should have known back then,
when I was piecing together
broken lines like this
in the margins of
organic chemistry textbooks,
that I wasn’t cut out for this.
I play the part, of course,
sometimes convincingly;
but who wants a mediocre doctor
who scribbles poetry
on the back of an ECG,
bemoaning the fact that
he missed his true calling,
if he ever had one?
