New Dermatologist Adam Geyer (COVID)

Peggy said everyone likes him even those

who don’t like anyone so I went to Dr. Adam

Geyer of Tribeca Dermatology

for my first ever skin check.

I’m in the Oh No category of too pale too old

Ashkenazi Jews and every day more or less

I see something somewhere that wasn’t there before

and then I google to see what it is and find

horrible pictures of flesh eating possibilities but

yesterday I went to check them all out with a

paid professional Dr. Adam Geyer, Peggy’s

favorite and when he walked in, young and ont ime

he said I’m Adam, ┬áTell me everything that’s

making you nervous now. Was I

limited to skin I asked.

Absolutely not he said.

Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.


  1. Love this one.

    Every summer until my mid-twenties I would let my skin sunburn until I was literally peeling off my skin for fun. Who knew? Not even my science-minded parents. Now I wait for skin cancer and am still hunting through the world of ever-migrating dermatologists and their tiny, dangerous razor blades.
