Doctor's yard

My friends suggested the words Dysdiadochokinesia, anticipation, gratitude, arachnophobia, reality, solidarity, paraphernalia for my next poem. Here it is:

Doctor's yard


Waiting rooms,

White walls,

White coats,

Whiter faces.


Anticipation,

Trepidation,

Palpitation,

Perspiration.


A mind, full of fear:

Arachnophobia,

Another's malfunction:

Dysdiadochokinesia.


Syringes, tubes,

Paraphernalia.

The smell of spirit,

Liquid and human.


Reality

Gravity

Solidarity

Magnanimity.


A doctor's form,

Words of comfort,

A patient's gratitude,

A mind quietens.
