Cancer Song #8

by June 2, 2023 0 comments

your morning starts at 5 am
just so they can tell you
that you could die on the table
scott wannberg’s ghost
stays close at your heels
watching over you
pushing an oxygen tank
through the first floor
of the cancer center
like a hungry angel
eating all of the fear
he can squeeze inside his belly
like it’s just an old movie
where you’re doing a dance
with death.

editors note:

A hard song to sing and dance to at the same time. – mh clay
