In the moment

quick silver

life dose of poison
tinkling
in fattened veins
shimmering
at visionโ€™s corner
like dew drops
in morning sun

glaring on branch
dark finger's
quiet quiver

bright the barb

blood sport
this 

chemo

  1. I thought this poem was about a feather ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ On a second reading of it I am astounded. Your writing is growing increasingly precise and glorious even when the subject matter is almost intolerable. Such is the power of words in the hand of a skilled writer. Brilliant. Just brilliant.

    1. Oooh. The feather is so interesting. I don’t think it’s strange. The sensations I was attempting to describe are not painful. Just very weird. The shimmering. The sense of something fast in my veins.so there are a lot of light words in there. I get the feather thing. And I am glad of all feedback. I live it but I am conscious that not everyone does, in fact maybe my response to the chemo is quite personal and therefore I have no idea if what I feel actually gets across in my words.
