The walls of the doctor’s office 

are plastered with inspirational sayings.


“Nothing is impossible.

The word itself says ‘I am possible.’”


I adore Audrey Hepburn,

mean no disrespect.


But the platitude is the same 

as the promises on the billboards


of the ‘Gentlemen’s Clubs’ 

I drive by daily. 


No gentleman is going to pretend 

these visits don’t strip you down

to where a cure feels impossible.
