mri

are you claustrophobic he asked

uhm, I guess, I answered

aren't we all i thought

they say don't look down when climbing

and don't open your eyes when having an mri


i didn't listen

I opened my eyes

and the roof of the machine

was centimetres above my face


jolted into a state of near panic

i dutifully closed my eyes

for the next 20 mins

that's why many need sedation

should've said yes to the drugs


loud banging and thudding

like being inside a washing machine

lying completely still

in this coffin like device


tried to think about open spaces

imagined running in a field

or rather the movie version of it

I haven't ran in a field before

always appears idyllic
