October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is my contribution to the fight against this dreaded disease.

Searching for a Cure 


here naked. 


for my turn to come. 


to be lost in a field of flowers. 


the sunlight on my skin. 


to have this undone. 


They're going to 

press it down, 

squeeze it flat, 

see inside. 

They'll tell me 

what's wrong, 

and give me 

a death warrant. 


Ahead is a life 

of pain, 



No one will 

want me like this, 

love me during this, 

see me through this. 


Think pink! 

Think cure! 

Someone take the time 

to save me from this disease.
