24/30 – Practical Imposter

Someone else’s life on the tip of my tongue,

Pretending with a purpose,

Not for fame or fortune,

But to train medical students in empathy,

Practical tasks at hand,

An imposter in a white hat,

Lungs deceiving with every drawn breath but thanked for turns,

Technicalities and testimony turned outward,

A flowery skill made sacrosanct,

Bond between false patient and the practice of learners,

Recalled in cacophony of meshed together meetings,

Distinct yet blurring,

Brilliance and battery all rolled into one.
