poisonous species
eats at her calmly each night;
still, she knows not yet.

Collection 02 – Cancer. No.00
Collection 02 – Cancer, was written in part because Freya Pickard’s last theme for her submissions over at Pure Haiku, was Cancer, and because my family has had a great deal of interaction with this disease. No.3 in this collection, specifically refers to how it must have looked to my late grandmother after her brother died of the disease, her sister recovered from breast cancer, and where she may have stood in the line after her first scare. I suppose, in hindsight, it also refers to my family (and other families) during those…visits.
