Compliance is as compliance does.

When I visit a doctor
For the first time
He or she
Wants to determine
How compliant
I am,
How compliant
I will be.
Will I set my alarm
For 5:30 AM
Take one pill
All on its own
Go back to sleep?
Will my pituitary gland
Behave itself
If I completely
Reorganize my life?
She says the difficulty
May well be mal-absorption
Some people take
Twice as much
As I do.
Maybe they are
Maybe they like to sleep
In the morning.
