Frustrating is sitting
at the doctor’s office,
having to piss
when nothing but air comes out and a slight trickle of blood-orange urine.
are you on your period or did you take a pain reliever
her english isn’t broken but her accent is
thick, like a down comforter in the middle of winter paired with a heat blanket.

Frustrating is seeing
the expression on the physicians face as he touches your body
exam handsing your torso chest and shoulders
when you flinch at the gloved touch on your layered clothing
do you want a female doctor referral
I’ll be fine but I’d like a female gyne.
