there is nothing I can say to make you unafraid of doctors

You are breaking out in hives across
your jaw. You are going to see the allergist 
today. They are going to patch you up, plug you up with
sesame seeds and apricots and dogs and cats and vodka
and clove and a cup of coffee. They split you in half while I leave
to teach myself a better way to say, “I can not wait to see you tonight.”
