I enjoyed the article on the influence of migraine upon art (August 2002 JRSM1). Some years ago I wrote some poems while in the grip of recurrent severe migraine—fortunately now much improved. Here is one of them, which I called Pain Pie:
Boil the pain. Bake it. Make it into bread.
Pain d'épice, spice of life, why am I dead?
Draw the pain. Paint it. Pull it from my head.
Art is life. Life is art. Live it, she said.
