shower

Warm water probes my bald head,

Where long hair used to diffuse

the chains of drops.

 

Savouring a moment of being alone,

I glance down to watch the water

leave my feet and run to the exit.

 

Strangely,

I see a clear view

of only one foot.

The other,

partly obstructed

by the intrusion of my breast.

Ah yes,

Cancer
