Inside the MRI

  Inside the MRI Machine 
The shaking like developing a Polaroid picture
The warmth of a overused camera
The click and buzz of a moment being captured
The uncertainty of did you really take a good picture
The hoping it's not blurred, and wondering if you need to try again
The warmth in your hands, you've been doing this for a while
Moving to a different spot for another picture
The feeling like you could do this simple thing forever
The tiredness that comes with having to hold still
Wishing you had the picture right now
but knowing that the picture will take a long time to develop just like this problem did.

So I got 2 scans a couple of weeks ago. It had been around 20 years since I got my last one and it was different. But it was good. It was warm, with a fan blowing over me. There was music and my ears didn’t hurt. My back didn’t hurt too much. Getting an MRI is not as bad as people make it out to be.
