Poem by Kathryn Anna Marshall : EMDR

EMDR

left brain right brain
left brain right brain
reroute neural pathways
rewrite my own tale
left brain right brain
left brain right brain
reluctant loss of signposts
identity is frayed
left brain right brain

I miss visceral pain
stomach rooted wail
left brain right brain

left brain right brain
body slam at memory
start of domino
left brain right brain
left brain right brain
small girl in my palm
wild feeling lives beside
power supplants harm
