These three poems--"Ballad of the Match with Death," "Set Free at Zero Gravity," and "Transparenzgesselschaft"--are embodiments as well as examples of narrative medicine. The poems demonstrate not only a range of forms and styles, but also the purpose of narrative medicine: Witness, Testimony, and Story-Telling.
