What Else

this is not quite my wit's end
though I'm weary of my hands'
affliction don't know what to do

the dermatologist (an Indian)
exhausts the use of cortisone
has nothing else to offer

the allergist is booked solid
appointment three weeks out
my condition getting worse

burning palms thickened skin
cracks rash spots up and down
my arms and legs itch all over

something has to be done
but what? I don't see doctors
I talk to their office staff

something must be causing it
I've stopped swimming what
else do I need to give up
