Psychosomatic

by allisonkujiraoka

The mind, the body

ethereal matter

a soul’s tsunami or

the heart’s steady patter.

Concentric circles and

overlappings:

The willingness to heal;

the fear that you can’t.

Thoughts colonize the flesh, and

symptoms pitch a tent.

The rise and fall of empires

within these corporal borders–

rack the brain for a panacea

or follow doctor’s orders.
