September 30


I finished 
in a thunderstorm
the radar map
a pulsing mould 
of blues and greens 
and reds

The tired nurses
wished me well
as they tended
to other patients
and I walked out
a sort of era
trailing behind me

like a walked through


Two wet bike tracks
and paw prints
in rosy silver
lead the way home
as my family head 
for the sunset
with my chemo
at our backs

    1. Thanks Ingrid. It feels like an anti climax. 🙂 While I’m glad it’s done, it’s not the end of treatment. But yes, it’s probably yes the toughest part … other than the mastectomy. Which is a mental hurdle I am still battling with.
