The Non-Visit

You can’t be a doctor if you don’t know the entire parts of the body
— Bernard Jeffrey McCullough

After pulling out
the Good Doc tells me
it’s nice & smooth
— she hands me a tissue
and turns her back

It’s been a few years
and we both agree
(at my age)
checking in regularly
is more than likely
a Good Thing
