Creater Lake by Al Rollins

Poetry


Chemo

Jody Zolli

Life is the gift that burns
As treatment tries the body with
A tireless game of tag

The balance slips from fingers
Now numb from countless days of cure
Soft swearing seems to help

Avert exhausted, aching eyes
Whistle in the dark, ignore
The calmly rising tide

Sometimes love looks like this
Daily lift and carry care
And cry behind closed doors
