Welcome! Take a seat, and please do slouch.
In fact, lay down on this psychiatric couch.
Tell me, exactly what ails you today?
You say your head hurts. Explain, in what way?
Is this problem new or ongoing for years?
What are some of your biggest fears?
Tell me all about your childhood.
Was it traumatic or mostly good?
Is your family close or full of strife?
Which activities are part of your life?
How do you feel about the opposite sex?
Are you dwelling on past regrets?
Have you been having recurrent dreams?
What are some of the common themes?
When conflict arises, how do you deal?
Tell me, how does that make you feel?
Less discuss some coping techniques.
How about we meet again in two weeks?
Here, take this prescription, and water with each dose.
Sharing poetry is about being close.
