Can a doctor be a poet?
Raphael Campo, MD, is a physician at Beth Israel in Boston, MA. He has published several volumes of poetry, but it must be hard to balance the right and left brain.
"Will you remember me the way I am
today? This long engagement---twenty years---
has taken something of a toll. I came
to bed last night, and thought that we were far
from being done with dreams."
