Doctor Wong

I think I may need to consult,
Doctor Wong again,
I have a black orchid growing
in my brain, like a toenail
turning in as barbed metal stems.

Its not been watered and wilts
and wanes, Doctor Wong
it needs extracting. But your
scalpel better be sharp.
Do you have pruning shears?

Doctor Wong replies
“What you require, is not medical attention,
but a philosophers’ intervention,
or a therapist at the very least,
have you considered writing poetry?”
