System Check

In the morning, I ask my body:

“Are you well today?”

“Well enough,” comes the reply.

“How about you, head and stomach?”

“All systems working,” they reply.

“Ears, nose, and throat?”

“All clear.”

“Then why am I not up to facing the day?” I ask.

“Oh,” the brain responds, “that is only a matter of the heart.”
