Editor’s Note: The author writes, “After 45 years in internal medicine, cardiology and epidemiology, I currently mentor trainees and junior faculty in research. Today the evidence-based advice of august medical panels is often disregarded by internet-savvy Americans. This irony led to my poem, ‘Medicine Yesterday Today.’”

my one o'clock doesn't show
suddenly an hour is added
or subtracted from my day
if only I had been prepared to
live in it unpack and stay
a while put my feet up or
buckle down to something
before a knock on my door
your two o'clock is here
