People sometimes ask how I write. I'm working on the Perforation story, started as a prose poem, and then life got in the way as it often does, in the form of this need to populate, explain, depict, breathe in oxygen and not just language. All the doctors in the story are real doctors, but I'm sure someone's going to say something like, "There are no doctors like this."
