neurotoxins


When do I become more
than the sum of my symptoms?
When do I become more
than a jumble of diagnoses
a tangle of chance alleles
and happenstance chromosomes?

When do I become more
than the division of cells
more than the product
of nature and nurture?
When do I become more
than the tally of objectives
a list of could-have’s
and should-have-been’s?

When do I become
a person?
