cancer: changes

once upon a time
body in shape, skin so smooth
hair and style intact

stilettos up straight
never a wobbly ankle
walk a model’s line
♦     ♦
cancer came along
not just a passing visit
footprints everywhere
♦     ♦     ♦
changing my landscape
sweet vanity stepped aside
no room at the inn
♦     ♦     ♦     ♦
i dance earnestly
to tamp new footprints over
cancer’s wretched mess
♦     ♦     ♦     ♦     ♦
hear renewed rhythm
pulsing across the landscape
dance barefoot and free
♦     ♦     ♦     ♦    ♦     ♦
