Addressing The Pituitary Growth

The neuro says            follow my finger.
Like I’m in trouble.

Says                 walk a straight line
like suspicion.

Says                 who was president before Obama
but I’ve blocked it.

Calls for mental math, eye contact,
says                  I want you to resist me

            as hard as you can.
