    Default The Therapist (CTG)

    The Therapist

    I've become a gray man in a gray room, professionally sensitized
    to my patients' problems. I am a radio telescope attuned
    to their voices droning on about their alien complaints
    as if they're visitors dropped in from Sirius or Andromeda.

    And I am complicit in this farce, for do I not nod
    sympathy or, alternatively, encourage them
    to divulge their insecurities or petty jealousies
    while snow sifts onto the tram tracks outside?

    A Green Goddess eases toward the Pier Head; once again, I wish
    I could hop aboard a steamer home to SA or be that guttersnipe
    hurling snowballs. Instead, my training sentences me

    to listen to Julie fantasize "bonk the therapist." Why doesn't
    she recognize me for what I have become: a masochist shackled
    to her tragedy, retold each Tuesday at 2:00 PM?
