ON WAITING FOR A DIAGNOSIS

Waiting outside the consulting room to find out if I had early onset Parkinson’s disease.

I’d already worked out I probably did.

 

 

 

On waiting for the diagnosis

 

It’s always the wait,

endless displacement footfall

a fruitless attempt to abate

the trial start panic name call

before spiralling neural melt

reaches shut down crescendo,

what hand has been dealt ?

I think I know.
