Franks Psychiatry 5 #69: under the skin

Frank Prem

they are morphogenetic twins
with only superficial differences
disguises to mislead the inattentive


cardigan overlay
streaky grey hair


platinum blonde wig
wide broad red lipstick







piercing SHRIEK


piercing SHRIEK


it’s not my fault paul
it was the other one that did it paul
I’m only six years old


It’s not my fault frank
it was bella inside me she did it
I’m only twenty-three


can I have a smoke
it’s time for my smoke now paul


frank will you get my smoke now
I want my smoke now frank


oh you’re such a BASTARD paul
get out get out GET AWAY FROM ME
I HATE you


I am SO going to marry robert
he DID NOT write that he wants me out of his life
I HATE you frank you’re a BASTARD


hahahaha I like you paul
you’re not too bad


I really like you frank
you’re nicer than those other nurses


good night paul


good night frank


goodnight my dear girls

    • Laura🌻

      As I read your writing,
      it reminds of a theater 🎭
      script! The details are

        Thank you Laura. That's lovely to hear.

        Alas poor yorrick, for I give him his medications - daily!

      • SLR

        Is this actually a set of twins or a nice way to say schizophrenic? (It does have the title 'under the skin' )??
        Anyway, I enjoy these posts of yours. If I ever get some time off work I want to go back and read them all from the beginning of your posts and catch up with your crowd. Thanks for posting!

          Hi SLR.

          Only twins in the sense of being identical - not actually related, if that makes sense.

          I always felt they 'should' have been twin twins.

          Another strange happening in the hospital.

            Yup. Another day another strange event.
