“Here’s a doctor I remember”

Here’s a doctor I remember:
A hero on the message boards
A six-month wait to see him
Weill Cornell Medical Center
Vulvodynia specialist blah blah blah
And when I saw him, I took off my clothes
And he looked at my skin

He had a theory
About pigmentation
And vulvar pain
And I was so much a piece of meat
He scratched my stomach
To see the mark it would leave
(This was part of the study)
And he said to me, “You have porcelain skin”
I wanted to hit him

I asked him about the side effects
Of the drug he wanted me to try
Exasperated, my good doctor said
“You can’t believe
Everything you read
On the Internet”
