A thank you letter

I want to thank the BMJ for publishing this letter and to thank all of the authors for writing it.

This is a thank you letter to  l i v e d   e x p e r i e n c e [in the form of a poem]:

 

A L O N E

Evidence cannot be based
in numbers and words
alone.

We are all “evidence”
of time experienced
uniquely.

You are unique
do not forget
that!

Science matters:
matter makes us [and made us]
the living [and the dead] understand [understood] this!

Yet, it is the unsaids, the unknowns, and soon forgottens
that alone we keep
dead or alive.
