Bir şiir: “Crisis”

Tufts Üniversitesi’nde psikiyatrist olan Ronald Pies’in bir şiirini sizlerle paylaşıyoruz. – TürkPsikiyatri

 

I’ve set aside

my prescription pad

and analytic calm-

dropped all pretense

of science:

it’s you and me now,

pressed cold

against death’s ribs.

 

I used what tricks

I know

to keep you living

through another

bony night,

another flurry

of final phone calls.

And you, as always,

refuting life:

denaturing love,

companions, sex.

Well, you leave

my office alive.

That’s as close

to certainty

as our work gets.

 

Ronald Pies, 1992
