They ask me to sign

the moment before

my poetry reading

and I comply,

though I don’t let on

my conflicts are

my greatest interest-

how I profit from sickness,

the way I can be both

detached and concerned,

that my most inspired device

is to marry psychiatry’s science,

without conflict,

to the poetry of healing.
