Superior Canal Dehiscence

JAMA. 2016;316(17):1830. doi:10.1001/jama.2016.9413

Listen to the movement of your eyes as you peruse
the words along the page, of muscles working
their orbitals this way and that. Hear the articulation
of the skeletal, of footfalls treading to a new awareness
of the self, where the level and tone of your own voice
can let whirl a vertigo to bring you to your knees.
No more tavern talk or party prattle, no tuneless crooning
in the shower stall or whistling while you work.
