Part II: Off to a Land of White Coats

Wired clamps and a gown

Five hours of blood tests drawn

Beeping ekgs and medical noises

Referred to an expert

My valves and arteries

Are anatomically examined

I walk then jog then huff and puff

On a treadmill to get blood going

And for seven days, the behavior

Of my red and suspicious organ

Is examined and recorded

I see a white coat once more

I wonder what’s occurring within

Beneath the surface of my skin

He tells me what I’ve waited for

It’s all in my head; a civil war

My brain is deceivingly to blame

And my heart is healthfully innocent
