Tone Deaf

DSC_2930          hospital skin
          clawing
          under my nails
          the scabs
          from when you
          were here.
                   the radio
                   still sings -
                   top 40 though.
          cells
          are songs untold:
                   non/malignant
                   non/operable
                   or/maybe
          full of heart
                   beating
                   each other
                   and jumping line
          one step
          closer to
          the end:

          like that song
          we all know
          stuck in our head

             - Rachel Gilliatt
