friends come by – December 9

12.9

friends come by and

we talk. about bodies

and tests and pains.

 

big words go unspoken,

like cancer and chance

and statistical odds.

 

we play cards instead

and eat and joke like

everyday people.

 

because life and death

and odds and cancer

are just part of the deal

 

and we are friends, in

this together, day for

day and night.
